We're happy to have Gert speak to you at this years Into the Box 2017! Traveling all the way from Switzerland, he'll be ready to show you "How to make CFML Script Fast" .
Gert was born in 1967 and lives in Switzerland since 1997. Back in the late eighties he studied astrophysics in Munich but switched to later IT as a profession and programmed for several companies in the past as a database administrator and system analyst.
When he's not working, Gert can usually be found solving code puzzles in preparation for hosting the next Code Wars episode.
How To Make CFML Script Fast
Very often programmers are using common CFML knowledge and then wonder, why a script is so slow. The approach to tune the code is not always intuitive and sometimes, one has to take different approaches to solve a problem in order for the task to be executed with the best possible performance. In this session we will take a look at a given task and how to performance tune it step by step. Each iteration will be described in detail and the individual steps will be questioned and explained. The audience can participate in the talk as the code is running live.-----
We asked Gert a few questions, here are his answers. We took the liberty to reply back to him to spice things up a bit.

Tell us a little more about your Session at ITB
It is a talk made from own experience with clients. Performance tuning, my passion.
Why should an Attendee not miss your session?
Because bad performance is a bug and many people ignore simple rules when it comes to performant code.
Loooking forward to see this!
