intel-intrinsics - Not intrinsically about intrinsics
Besides familiarity, we'll discuss the measurable improvements you may expect today from your usage of intel-intrinsics, versus alternatives, with examples of real production code.
What could possibly be more boring than that?
It turns out intel-intrinsics is different from equivalents in other languages. Our vision is to decorrelate semantics and codegen completely to harness the power of the backend.
Guillaume Piolat worked as a professional complainer in various segments of the software industry: mostly signal processing. Struck by baldness early, he is now a purveyor of audio effects in the pro audio market, as Auburn Sounds. Guillaume created "D-idioms", a blog to bring awareness on the most mundane points of the language. You will likely see him rant about complexity on the D forums.
