An Introduction to Multithreading in C++20
Where do you begin when you are writing your first multithreaded program using C++20? Whether you've got an existing single-threaded application, or you're starting from scratch, C++20 provides the basic tools to help. In this talk we'll look at the C++20 facilities you should reach for first, and how to use them safely.
Anthony Williams’ primary area of expertise is in the development of multi-threaded applications and libraries in C++. Anthony is the author of C++ Concurrency in Action, published by Manning. He is a UK-based developer and trainer with over 20 years of experience in C++.
Anthony has been an active member of the BSI C++ Standards Panel since 2001, and is author or coauthor of many of the C++ Standards Committee papers that led up to the inclusion of the thread library in the C++11 Standard. He continues to work on new facilities to enhance the C++ concurrency toolkit, both with standards proposals, and implementations of those facilities.
Anthony lives in the far west of Cornwall, England, where he currently spends most of his time developing automotive software for Woven Planet.
