Today, most application developers write code without much regard for how quickly it will run. Moreover, once the code is written, it is rare for it to be reengineered to run faster. But two technology trends of historic proportions are instigating a resurgence in software performance engineering, the art of making code run fast. The first is the emergence of cloud computing, where the economics of renting computation, as opposed to buying it, heightens the utility of application speed.

GBC/ACM – The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. It provides resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM (GBC/ACM) provides our community of professionals with current and practical information from the innovators themselves. We are a forum for collaborative learning that provides the community with free Evening Seminars and full day Professional Development Seminars that feature distinguished speakers and guests.

GBC/ACM has been one of the most active and successful chapters in the ACM worldwide since its founding in 1962. GBC/ACM is run by volunteers and we encourage your participation in achieving our ongoing mission.
