Do you remember my article about the speed of sorting large data chunk in different languages? Of course you don’t. So, I advice you to go through that article as there is a description of the test procedure. However, today I’m going to extend this benchmark by testing go language. The results will be surprising…

I may be biased a little bit because I have contributed to that project but the tool has given me help in many cases […]

During my professional career, I have found out that the volatile type qualifier is frequently misunderstood and, what is even worse, incorrectly used (leading to nasty bugs). I’ll show the differences […]
