Have you registered for CppCon 2017 in September? Don’t delay – Registration is open now.
While we wait for this year’s event, we’re featuring videos of some of the 100+ talks from CppCon 2016 for you to enjoy. Here is today’s feature:
Rich Code for Tiny Computers: A Simple Commodore 64 Game in C++17
by Jason Turner
Summary of the talk:
The Commodore 64 was released in 1982 and is the best selling computer model of all time. At 34 years old, even the most simple embedded processor today outperforms it. Join me on an exploration of how C++17 techniques can be utilized to write expressive, high performance, high level code for simple computers. Together we will create a game for this aging system.
You'll leave the talk with a better understanding of what your compiler is capable of and be able to apply these ideas to create better code on modern systems.
