As multicore and manycore systems become increasingly dominant, handling concurrency will be one of the most crucial challenges developers face. Just as most mainstream programmers have been required to master GUIs and objects, so it will be for concurrency: to achieve the performance they need, developers will have to build and master new libraries, tools, runtime systems, language extensions and above all, new programming best practices. In 'Effective Concurrency in C++, ' world-renowned programming guru Herb Sutter identifies and illuminates those best practices. Building on the innovative format pioneered by Scott Meyers's best-selling 'Effective C++, ' Sutter presents 35 practical, bite-size chapters, each explaining one proven technique for more successful concurrent programming. Each technique is illuminated through carefully-crafted programming examples written in C++ 0x, the new portable C++ standard - ensuring that programmers will be able to rely on them for many years to come. Sutter also provides case studies and exercises that go beyond the standard 'Effective' format to deliver even more engaging hands-on practice, and help developers achieve even deeper mastery.
