What Every Computer Programmer Should Know About Floating-Point Arithmetic, Redux

Next week on Wednesday, October 11, at the Silicon Valley ACCU meeting in San Jose, I'll be giving a version of my talk on What Every Computer Programmer Should Know About Floating-Point Arithmetic, previously seen at Stanford and JavaOne. The meeting is open to the public and free of charge, so if you've ever wondered why adding up ten copies of 0.1d doesn't equal 1.0 or doubted the need for a floating-point value that is not a number, come on by.

After the talk, I'll post a copy of the slides.

Update: The slides.
