Yes, that's right — this Halloween we've got 3 copies of
portability pack worth £100 to give away. The
Portability Pack provides implementations
for both Linux and Windows, so you can use the same code for both
platforms right off the bat.
Not only does
just::thread provide a complete
the C++0x standard
thread library for Windows and Linux, but it also
deadlock detection mode. If deadlocks are sucking the
life out of your multithreaded code then the deadlock detection
mode can get straight to the heart of the problem and tell you
which synchronization objects are the cause of the problem, which
threads are waiting and where. Crucially, the library will also
tell you which thread owns each object, and where it took

How to enter
Entering is really easy — just write a short blog post about
your concurrency gremlins that links back to the contest page. It
could be that you'd like to add multithreading to your application
but don't know where to start, or you're plagued with deadlocks (in
which case you could use your new copy
to help you find the cause!) Maybe you've conquered all your
concurrency problems, in which case I'd like to hear about how you
did it. Whatever your story, I want to know —
even a twitter-style 140-character summary would be fine.
Once you've got your blog post up, either email email@example.com, or add a comment to this blog entry. Just make sure you do it before the deadline: Halloween, 31st October 2009. For full details and terms and conditions, see the contest page.
