Simple Speed Tester – moved to Github!

Since I’m liking git more and more by the day, with tools such as SmartGit and GitFlow making the task of managing even a complex branching model a relatively easy task, I’ve decided to move my Simple Speed Tester project over to github!

Simple Speed Tester is a very simple framework I wrote to help me run benchmarks and is used to power my JSON and binary serializers benchmarks. It takes cares of some of the orchestration that you tend to do when running benchmarks, e.g.:

  • repeating a test multiple times
  • time the individual runs
  • ignore the min and max runs and use the rest to calculate a meaningful average

It’s intended to be really easy to use (see examples here) and for one and only one use case – help you speed test a specific piece of code!

If you’re like me and like to run your own benchmarks then check it out, you can also install it via Nuget.
