C++ GOINGNATIVE LECTURE 0x04 (FREE FOOD!): Thurs. Nov. 7, 6:30 PM, PHY 150 ---
This week's C++ lecture is presented by Andrei Alexandrescu, entitled "Writing Quick Code in C++, Quickly." Abstract:
``Contemporary computer architectures make it possible for slow code to work reasonably well. They also make it difficult to write really fast code that exploits the CPU amenities to their fullest. And the smart money is on fast code---we're running out of cool things to do with slow code, and the battle will be on doing really interesting and challenging things at the envelope of what the computing fabric endures.
``This talk is an attempt to set forth a few pieces of tactical advice for writing quick code in C++. Applying these is not guaranteed to produce optimal code, but is likely to put it reasonably within the ballpark.''
