C++ 11 delivered strong support for multithreaded applications, and the subsequent C++14 and 17 updates have built on this baseline. C++ has better options for concurrency than ever before, which means it’s an incredibly powerful option for multicore and parallel applications.
This bestseller has been updated and revised to cover all the latest changes to C++ 14 and 17! C++ Concurrency in Action, Second Edition teaches readers everything they need to write robust and elegant multithreaded applications in C++17. Along the way, they’ll learn how to navigate the trickier bits of programming for concurrency while avoiding the common pitfalls.
• Completely updated
• Hands-on learning
• In depth guide
Written for C++ programmers who are new to concurrency and others who may have written multithreaded code using other languages, APIs, or platforms.
