Cache consistency and the C++ memory model: writing code to real hardware (2019)


Memory Model is probably the single most important change introduced in C++11.

In this talk, we will discuss what is a memory model, and more importantly, why we should care. Spoiler alert: The answer in one line: it will help us to write faster more correct code for multi threads and even single thread. Along the way, we will delve into exciting side topics such as Data-Oriented Design, Cache Oblivious Algorithms, False Sharing and more.
