Advanced Compiler Optimizations for the Smallest, Fastest Code

Greg Davis  (Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software)

Location: 107B

Date: Thursday, May 16

Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Track: ESC Boston, Track B: Embedded Software Design & Verification, ESC Boston, Track E: Focus on Fundamentals

Vault Recording: TBD

Understanding the compilation process is crucial to generating the tighest code from your source code. Compiler technology has not yet run it course, and new cutting-edge optimizations have made enormous executation and code size savings. This talk will survey some of my favorite optimizations: some are old, but highly effective, while others are virtually unknown outside of the tight knit community of compiler developers. All of them are, in my opinion, quite fascinating.


Attendees will learn about the latest compiler optimizations used in the field. This knowledge helps to understand what compilers can and cannot do to streamline code.
