Hi David,
Thank you for adding the projects ideas for Boost.uBlas. I am interested in
being a candidate for implementing Project 1: "Convert uBlas to C++20
technologies". I am currently reading the "C++ High Performance: Boost and
Optimize the Performance of your C++17 Code" book for coming up with ideas
to simplify the code base for uBlas. Please recommend any other resources
that I could use to broaden my understanding about C++20 features. The
second bullet under the project description mentions about improving the
speed of uBlas on single core, but doesn't mention any specific operations,
so are there any specific operations that you have in mind for optimizing?
Thank you for helping!
