Talk title: Optimizing Your Game: Beyond the Basics

Game optimization can be something between a dark art and a rabbit hole. It is tempting to seek radical algorithms, and fancy culling techniques to extract that last bit of performance in a game. In this talk, however, I will make a case for a better way of thinking about your code. Understanding how modern hardware works, and making small adjustments to the way you write code, can dramatically help improve performance.
Dr. Sajid Farooq has been pushing pixels since the days of the Commodore 64 in BASIC, and has been using graphics software since 3D Studio r4 in DOS. He is currently a professor of Game Programming at Champlain College, and the founder of FurtherX, a company creating procedural technology for games.
