Find out why application power consumption is important to pay attention to. Developers often times do not care about their application's power consumption but it is a very important pillar when looking at performance. By reducing your application's power consumption, your application can respond to user input much faster and thus the overall user experience greatly improves. In this course you will go over the tools you can use and guide lines for using these tools to properly profile your application's power consumption.
- [Voiceover] With reduced power consumption, your application is consuming less resources, such as memory, and the CPU is not busy working on other tasks. That means that the CPU is readily and immediately available to respond to user inputs when they happen. This means that you're going to have faster response times to user input. With the faster response times, you're going to have a much better user experience. With a better user experience, you're going to have happy users. Those happy users will then continue playing you application or using your application for a longer duration, because they can.
So, in short, with reduced power consumption, you're going to have those faster response times because the system resources and the CPU are going to be immediately available to respond to user inputs when they occur.
With these diagnostic tools and some efficient programming, you can reduce your app's power consumption while improving its response times. In this course, Thomas Pantels introduces a handful of tools used to measure and optimize power consumption. You will see demos on how to use the Intel Power Gadget, Windows Performance Toolkit, TypePerf, and SoC Watch, along with some simple coding tips for making any Windows app more energy efficient.
