My notes on Data Driven Design for Game Development

Key Points:

Only read needed inputs
Write to linear array
Loop over all the data
Actual code unchanged(Object Oriented Design)
Code separated

Optimize for data first then code
Most code is likely bound by memory access
Not everything needs to be an object
Pre-format. Source data and native data doesn’t need to be the same


Data Locality
