Speaking Sessions

  • Common C++ Optimizations

    3:45 PM Saturday   Room: Shoot The Breeze
    The C++ standard gives compilers room to optimize the code we write and in this session, we’ll explore how we can write code that exploits this power.

    Our goal is to write code that is as clear as possible without every compromising on performance and to unlock the best performance that the compiler can give us.

    We’ll explore the inline keyword and its implications as well as copy elision and the return value optimization.
