I am excited to be going to CppCon again this year, where I will be running a 2-day class: More Concurrent Thinking in C++: Beyond the Basics.
The class is onsite at the conference venue in Aurora, Colorado, USA, on Saturday 10th September 2022 and Sunday 11th September 2022, immediately before the main conference.
I'll be teaching you to think about the synchronization properties of the constructs you use, and how to work with the low level facilities provided by the C++20 standard to build high level abstractions. We'll look at actors, thread pools and executors, and how to design code that works with those abstractions.
We'll look at how to use low-level atomic operations to build lock-free data structures, and the issues that can arise when doing so. We'll also look at how scalability concerns can impact your design choices.
Finally, we'll look at the important issue of testing multithreaded code, and the tools we can use to help us find the causes of problems.
If this sounds interesting, sign up for the class when you register for the main conference.
I'll also be doing a presentation on Tuesday: An Introduction to Multithreading in C++20. This is a whistle-stop tour of the multithreading features of C++20, briefly covering each feature and what it is used for, and which you should choose by default.
Whether you come to my class and presentation or not, I hope to see you there!
