15x Performance Improvements Without Really Trying? [24970]
Learn to Optimize, Dr. John Feo Urges

Dr. John Feo summarizes his findings on two dozen personal codes: those written by single users or small research groups for their own use and not otherwise distributed. For all but two of these programs, Feo writes, it was possible to improve single processor performance by margins of from 2x to 15.5x with a simple average of 4.75x. Feo concludes that personal scientific research codes are highly inefficient and not running parallel chiefly because developers are unaware of simple optimization techniques. His recommendation is to require graduate students to take a semester length course in optimization and parallel programming.

The [System] Developer's Edge: 322 page pdf [24858]
Darryl Gove's Book Back in Circulation Once Again

"The System Developer's Edge: Selected Blog Posts and Articles" is available now as a pdf, reports Darryl Gove. The pdf differs from the earlier book in only two significant ways, Gove writes, the first being an absence of cover art and the second being a change in the title to include the word "system," indicating a focus on the hardware end of the stack. Some of the links in the pdf are no longer current, Gove cautions, just as a number of the products discussed may have been rebranded or come to end of life under Oracle.
