In this instructor interview, Kevin Carpenter welcomes Patrice Roy. Together they discuss his CppCon Academy class Thinking Small including some of the cross over from his other class Managing Memory. Patrice will be teaching this pre-conference class onsite in Aurora, Colorado.
Patrice has been working with C++ for over 30 years. Part of that time was spent working on military flight simulators and he has been teaching computer science since 1998. His passion for the language, technology and his teaching ability is why he is sought after by top gaming companies to learn the same techniques he teaches in these classes.
Kevin and Patrice talk about the size from different angles. Including the starting size of binaries, to the different ways data is represented and the tools built into the language itself that are used reach the class goals. They also cover the similarities to Patrice’s other class Managing Memory and how someone who was considering that class would still get value from Thinking Small.
You can still register for this class and for CppCon.
