The Price of Shared Pointers or Why Passing them by-reference can be Useful

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The price usually known is the overhead of the control object, which can became even more expensive if make_shared() is used. But there is an additional price that can play an important role if good performance is key: synchronization. As a consequence counter-intuitive things such as passing shared pointers by reference can become important. This talk discusses the whole story of shared pointers.
