I'm a former software engineer transitioning to a career in medicine. During my free time, I pursue a lot of random interests that are changing pretty much all the time.
The IEEE Standard 754
I recently dug up a presentation I did as an undergrad back in 2015 for my Programming Languages course. The task was to do a 2-minute “elevator pitch” for the IEEE 754 floating-point standard. I took some liberties with the assignment and proceeded to perform the following “rap”. I can’t guarantee that it’s 100% technically correct, but if you’re as nerdy as me you might get a kick out of it.
Coincidentally, I just discovered that it fits almost perfectly over this karaoke version of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
