So I have a computer. My computer contains hardware (like a CPU! RAM! L1/L2 caches!) But I don’t understand very well how fast that hardware is, what tools I have to profile it, and how much of the time that my programs are running is split between RAM/the hard disk/the CPU.
We should high five each other for good ideas/though/etc to keep motivation and for each other encouragement.
Egyptians build pyramids that way.
