C&B 2011 Panel: Herb Sutter, Andrei Alexandrescu and Scott Meyers - Concurrency and Parallelism

40 minutes, 46 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

I was able to attend C++ and Beyond 2011 and it was a tremendous experience. The technical depth and C++ goodness was profound and lasted for 3 whole days (and two evenings). Thanks Andrei Alexandrescu, Scott Meyers and Herb Sutter for allowing me to crash your affair with my camera - which was perhaps too big and too advanced for the likes of me - still, I was abe to capture some great content like this interactive panel on Concurrency and Parallelism with Scott, Andrei and Herb. Great questions from attendees. Note that this is the second in a series of three panels from C++ and Beyond 2011 that will appear on C9 over the coming months.

Make sure to check out all the C&B 2011 content we're lucky enough to have stored on C9 Smiley

Enjoy! Learn!
