Daniel Spiewak (‘12 BS computer science), a Distinguished Engineer at NVIDIA, and previously chief architect at Disney Streaming, presents a talk tailored for students in computer science and computer engineering.

Description: When you write code that uses multiple threads, how can you tune the performance with regard to callbacks, thread pools and timers? The quest to come up with a satisfying answer to this question has taken me on a journey from the highest levels of algebraic abstraction all the way down to the transistor pathways of a modern CPU. In this talk, we’ll dive headlong into a problem space familiar to the ancestral practitioners of computer engineering, now long forgotten amongst the convenience of modern systems.
