CPPCON Day #5. Miscellaneous

I’m back from #CPPCON2017 now, and can report on the last day of it. First (and IMO foremost <wink />), there was my own talk on “Eight Ways to Handle Non-blocking Returns in Message-passing Programs: from C++98 via C++11 to C++20”. Not sure whether it was exciting enough (and 3 or 4 people left the […]

#CPPCON2017. Day 3. The Future of C++

At #CPPCON2017 Day 3, I spent most of the time on the meetings of SG14 (on games and low-latency stuff); while it was certainly useful for me – the most interesting things on Day 3 happened outside of SG14. Generative C++ == The Future IMNSHO, the most important talk of Day 3 (and probably of […]

#CPPCON2017. Day 2. Why Local Allocators are a Good Thing(tm) Performance-Wise, and Why I am Very Cautious about C++17 STL parallelized algos

At CPPCON2017 Day 2, two talks were of special interest to me. One was a 2-hour talk about Local Allocators – and another about C++17 STL parallelised algorithms.

There were posters, and while some were well, not to my taste (example: IMNSHO, a global deadlock detection […]

C++ Performance: Common Wisdoms and Common “Wisdoms”

Quote: “over(ab)using C++ features is a different story, we’ll discuss these features below on case-by-case basis”
Another Quote: “Compiler will use all its Next-to-Divine Wisdom to show you that it is smarter than you are, and to ignore most of those inline specifications you carefully wrote.”

MMOG Server-Side. Eternal Linux-vs-Windows Debate

Quote: “Each server is only as secure as its admin”
Another Quote: “For cheaper servers, the difference between Windows and Linux can eat as much as 50% of the server rental price (though for those servers which are more or less optimal price-performance-wise observed difference was closer to 20-30%).”
