Our advanced C++ courses are not for the faint of heart, but don’t be afraid! You will gain a deeper understanding of threading and synchronization and some pro tips for squeezing the most performance possible out of your code.

Modern C++ concurrency.


This course will introduce you to modern C++ concurrency on the Windows operating system. Unfortunately, standard or portable concurrency is still in its infancy so a comprehensive study of concurrency cannot get away from the practical and platform-specific aspects of the craft. As such, this course uses the Windows operating system as the playground to explore concurrency in C++. This course will prepare you with a deep understanding of threads and synchronization at the OS level, including modern synchronization primitives such as slim reader/writer locks and condition variables. You will learn all about the mighty Windows thread pool API and the Concurrency Runtime. Finally, you will be introduced to some of the shortcomings that plague the C++11 Thread Support Library.
