Programming Tips

Over the past few years, I’ve asked the faculty at Nevis, “What non-ROOT topics would you like me to cover in my computing tutorial?” In 2021, I got the response, “Teach them how to make their code faster.”

That’s a huge topic. It’s not quite big enough for me to make the “lifetime” joke again, but it’s hard to decide what exactly to teach.

The topics below are a scattering of tidbits that I’ve picked up over the years. I hope you find at least some of them useful.
