In this article, I've collected a huge amount of links all of which could prove potentially useful to software developers who are getting acquainted with 64-bit world. In general, we will cover C/C++ languages, but I am sure, that developers from other languages will discover a lot of interesting stuff here as well.
The definition of a 64-bit system and overview of its evolution
Architecture of 64-bit systems
Data model, types' sizes, alignment
Course on 64-bit application development
Building the applications
- I invite you to follow our twitter @Code_Analysis or Viva64 subreddit. Subjects: C/C++, 64-bit systems, testing, algorithms and other interesting programming stuff.
- I offer you to download the trial of PVS-Studio static code analyzer to ensure the reliability of your 64-bit applications.
