The ACCU 2019 conference is running from 9th-13 April 2019, in Bristol, UK.
This year I will be presenting "Here's my number; call me, maybe. Callbacks in a multithreaded world" on 11th April. The abstract is:
A common pattern in multithreaded applications is the use of callbacks, continuations and task pipelines to divide the processing of data across threads. This has the benefit of ensuring that threads can quickly move on to further processing, and can minimize blocking waits, since tasks are only scheduled when there is work to be done.
The downside is that they can weave a tangled web of connections, and managing object lifetimes can now become complicated.
This presentation will look at ways of managing this complexity and ensuring that your code is as clear as possible, and there is no possibility of dangling references or leaked objects.
I will also be signing copies of the second edition of my book C++ Concurrency In Action now that it is finally in print.
I look forward to seeing you there!
