Session

Unblocked By Design

Asynchronous designs present an opportunity for greater system performance, but require a different mindset to take full advantage of. Applying normal synchronous approaches to asynchronous designs often lead to less efficient implementations, added complexity, and can negate the advantages a non-blocking system can leverage. In this session, we will discuss some of the issues one can encounter when developing with and for asynchronous architectures and components.

PANEL DISCUSSION

JIT vs. AOT: How to Pick the Right Approach
