200: A Tale of Two Tracers

We will walk through the design and coding, in Swift and then in Metal, of a ray tracer — a program to make images by computing how light bounces around a scene and into the eye. How will the expressive, functional, protocol-oriented Swift ray tracer compare with the one written for screaming performance in C++ oriented Metal?

This talk will be given jointly with Jonathan Blocksom
