Looking under the Hood to Optimize C++ Code


Many times when learning how to write software, engineers are taught data structures, algorithms and how to write in a specific language. As they progress through their career, they learn how to make to code more performant through tips and language changes. However, they learn little about how the application interacts with the platform the application needs to perform. This presentation will try to go further into the environment that the application needs to run and gives ideas that any engineer can explore further to get the ultimate performance improvements in their written code.
