Everyone needs the right tools to do their job properly – and programmers are no exception. When buying a compiler, why not upgrade to one of the Intel® Studio XE editions, and get the most productive development environment available today?
Intel software tools such as Intel® VTune™ Amplifier and Intel® Inspector have a formidable reputation for providing in-depth analysis of code behaviour, and they are very easy to master, as you can see in “A Plain Man’s Introduction to Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2011”. There is also a wealth of Intel supplied tutorial material, starting from the basics, at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-product-tutorials/#studioxe. More advanced video tutorials can be found at the Intel® Learning Lab (see http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-learning-lab/).
