Understanding How Your CPU Thinks

Regular Session

You know all those algorithms you take for granted? I'm not talking about those boring algorithms you learned in school. I mean things like adding two numbers or converting a number to to text. Have you ever wondered how the computer really does that? I recently embarked on a journey to create a math library that would efficiently handle large numbers. Along the way, I had to figure out how some of these algorithms really worked, and was completely surprised by their ingenuity. The end result was a better appreciation for all those library methods that are "just there" and a new approach for solving problems in my own code. I this session, I will share all these findings with you. From the surprisingly mundane to the completely insane, I invite you join me beyond the operators and into the algorithms. You will leave this session with a better understanding of low level code that will help you write better code.
