Performance Ninja Class
This is an online course where you can learn to find and fix low-level performance issues, for example CPU cache misses and branch mispredictions. It's all about practice. So we offer you this course in a form of lab assignments and youtube videos. You will spend at least 90% of the time analyzing performance of the code and trying to improve it.
Each lab assignment focuses on a specific performance problem and can take anywhere from 30 mins up to 4 hours depending on your background and the complexity of the lab assignment itself. Once you're done improving the code, you can submit your solution to Github for automated benchmarking and verification.

Support the project
Performance Ninja is in a very much work-in-progress state. We will be adding new lab assignments and videos! The course is free by default, but we ask you to support us on Github Sponsors, Patreon or PayPal. Your sponsorship will speed up adding new lab assignments.
