Session 1

Title: CPU Cache and Cache Line Optimizations

Short description: Lets take a look at one of the most expensive types of memory; the CPU cache. We'll learn more about what it is, how it works, where it fits into the processing pipeline and the overall architecture; then learn how to make it more effective.

Session 2

Title: Building web apps with Polymer

A practical look into using Polymer for building web applications. Polymer isn't yet another JavaScript framework, but rather it's like a next generation JQuery that brings features to modern browsers to allow making web apps easy.
