This talk had a lot of potential, but I couldn’t get through it. A lot of bits were very hand-wavy, and probably needed a lot more familiarity with C++ to grok. Examples:
- What are sentinels?
- Why does the node_hash_set require iterating over the whole array?
- What is metadata (in this context)?
- What are control bytes?
In general the ideas were intriguing, but the delivery made it difficult for me to understand. I’d love to learn more about this stuff, but a paper/blogpost would be far more preferable.
