Debugging General Performance Python general ToolingSee in schedule: Thu, Jul 29, 11:30-12:00 CEST (30 min)
Even if you use a debugger, it is often required to print some variables or expressions, preferably with their name and sometimes even the location.
The normal way to do that is with a print statement, like
| print("hello= ", hello)
or with Python >= 3.8:
Ycecream makes this easier with a simple call to y:
and then you will get
| y| hello: "world"
But you can also add the location in the program where this debug call is coming and get something like
| y| #6 in testproc() hello: "world"
But ycecream can do much more to help to debug and benchmark Python programs.
In this presentation, I will live code to demonstrate ycecream,
There are some similar packages out there, like IceCream and show. In this talk I will point out some of the main differences.

I am a logistics expert, with a long history in simulation engineering, particularly in the field of container terminal (robotization).
Nowadays I am an independent simulation and IT consultant.
Besides that, I have always been a software developer, being one of the pioneers of Prestel emulators, a kind of predecessor of browsers. I have programmed in all kinds of languages ranging from Algol to Z80 assembler. Python is my favorite language for a couple of years.
I am the core developer of an open-source discrete event simulation and animation package, called salabim, which is used for a wide range of applications, ranging from warehouses, supply chains, ports, hospital logistics, and network optimization to material handling.
I am also the author of several open source packages including ycecream, MySimpleGUI and easy_property.
