Started reading The Art of Multiprocessor Programming last night, and dang I miss programming close to the metal. This using Promises and ending up with weird queue conflicts because there's no real plan for concurrency sticks.

I don't do any C++, but I've been really enjoying https://www.amazon.com/Art-Writing-Efficient-Programs- optimizations/dp/1800208111 (The Art of Writing Efficient Programs: An advanced programmer's guide to efficient hardware utilization and compiler optimizations using C++ examples. Terrible title). It's got good explanations of pipelining, predictive branching, caching, and also talks about making concurrent data structures (when locks / spinlocks / CAS are appropriate), and a ton[Wiki] of microbenchmarks.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
