Win a copy of just::thread in our Halloween Contest

Friday, 16 October 2009

Spooky Castle

Yes, that's right — this Halloween we've got 3 copies of the just::thread portability pack worth £100 to give away. The Portability Pack provides implementations of just::thread 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 implementation of the C++0x standard thread library for Windows and Linux, but it also includes a special 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 ownership.

Enter this contest now for your chance to win.

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 of just::thread 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 contest@stdthread.co.uk, 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.

Good luck!
