Cruel World of Concurrent Beasts – Concurrency Challenges in System Software, by speaker Diogo Behrens.
To take most performance out of the modern CPUs, developers have to make their algorithms aware of hardware peculiarities, such as caches, cores, etc. That greatly complicates implementations. As a developer, one has to face the dilemma between easy reasoning and best performance. In this talk, we will review challenges often neglected in university courses: concurrency, weak memory models, and NUMA domains. My goal is to raise your awareness to these issues and motivate you to think on how to tackle them in your future career.
We provide the prize at Q&A session for the wonderful answers: Huawei Freebuds!
