A large collection of ARM links

ARM being the CPU brand inside Raspberry Pis. This is a collection of talks and links to articles about the ARM architecture, concurrency, performance and way too much other stuff to list. There’s a lot in there and I defy anyone with the vaguest interest not to find something of interest.

I’m not a hardware person myself, but dipping into stuff like this can yield benefits. Remember the CPU in the Pi 4B has four cores. If you are writing software that just runs one one thread then it’s like driving a car with a four cylinder engine but its only firing on one. And if you manage to write software to use all four cores, do you know how to avoid false sharing? (Yes it’s a thing!)
