SkillsCast coming soon.
Would you like to discover why access patterns are important? Or what kind of speed you can gain with them? Join LJC for an evening with Richard Warburton discussing how you can write simple high level code which works well with these kind of patterns.
These days fast code needs to operate in harmony with its environment. At the deepest level this means working well with hardware: RAM, disks and SSDs. A unifying theme is treating memory access patterns in a uniform and predictable that is sympathetic to the underlying hardware. For example writing to and reading from RAM and Hard Disks can be significantly sped up by operating sequentially on the device, rather than randomly accessing the data.
