Optimized C++: Proven Techniques for Heightened Performance (Paperback)

Kurt Guntheroth





Improve the performance of your C++ programs to meet customer requirements for responsiveness and throughput. With this practical book, you’ll learn how to take correct code that embodies best practices of C++ design, and change it into correct code that also runs faster and consumes fewer resources on pretty much any computer.

You won’t learn about laboriously coding assembly language subroutines, counting clock cycles, or memorizing how many instructions Intel's latest silicon stylings can dispatch concurrently. This book is about performing miracles.

  • Learn the mindset that good performance tuning programmers use
  • Get examples with timing data to “prove” that the book’s suggestions improve performance
  • Dive into commonly occurring optimization problems with actionable, up-to-date, testable advice
  • Understand good C++ practice over arcane microprocessor lore
