What Every Programmer Should Know About Memory (Paper)

In Progress

https://akkadia.org/drepper/cpumemory.pdf

This paper is deeply unfamiliar and challenging (not to mention very dense), but this strikes me as the sort of thing that can be valuable no matter how high on the stack you are. I’ve only read through 28 (of ~110) pages, but I’m already able to follow conversations/talks about this subject matter significantly better. I have a hunch that this talk would’ve been far more inscrutable without the context this paper has provided so far.
