I have posted slides from my talk "Eliminating Code Overhead" which I gave yesterday at Square.

By themselves, these slides are sparse on any explanation or reasoning for what's on them. The event was recorded and a video of me blabbering over them will be made available later.

The CPU, RAM, and disk are finite resources that are often taken for granted as unbounded. Not only is this obviously untrue, but the use of these resources directly affects the most important resource on a mobile device: the battery. This talk will focus on techniques that both libraries and applications can implement to ensure their effect is in general without overhead.

Close. They actually embed the bands with fairy dust and puppy giggles. They don't really do much beyond exposing you to elevated levels of those elements. 😝
