We all know GPUs are much faster than CPUs for a wide range of applications. When someone asks why we are not just programming for GPUs at all, one of the most common answers is that GPUs are not good ...
I'm currently working on a project with a partner where we analyze large datasets of past sporting events. There are approximately 30,000 events per year and we have historical data for five years. ...
Is there a comparative study of the memory consumption of programming languages runtimes, correlated with expressiveness and production bug ratios? [closed]
There are many comparative studies and available online when it comes to the runtime performance of applications built using one language or another. Some driven by corporations, some academic, some ...
In your opinion, do you think it is a waste of time to make checks that you know there is no possible way of it being there/not being there, or would you just put it there just in case there is a bug ...
I am considering writing a new software product. Performance will be critical, so I am wary of using an interpreted or language or one that uses a emulation layer (read java). Which leads me to ...
Is it possible to create a new "Custom Conditional Statement" in java. Here i am planning to create a new custom component for the switch statement to give better performance. The custom Switch ...
In general, the more concise & flexible a language is the slower is the execution of programs written in this language. on the other side, the fast languages are mostly overly verbose, requiring ...
Not to long ago I was here on stack overflow and saw this great diagram of programming languages performance comparison, and now I can't find it... Does anyone have a similar comparison? The two I'm ...
Here's how I see it. There's machine code and it's all that computers needs in order to run something. Computers don't care about programming languages. It doesn't matter to them whether the machine ...
After reading this post about ideal programming language learning sequence, I am wondering what would have been the answers if the question was performance -instead of learning- oriented ? Since ...
