Sunnyvale: Lockfree Queues with C++ Atomics
The siren song of lock-free data structures beckons. Who could resist the opportunity to avoid the shores of lock contention, only to crash against the rocks of race conditions? In this talk, a simple lock-free queue shall be designed, showing both the performance benefits of using C++11 atomic operations and just how hard it is to avoid race conditions, even for such a simple data structure. Our speaker, Jeff Cohen, is a certified language nerd. He has been using C++ since cfront was a thing.

What we're about

If you can code in C++, you can code in any language. Moreover, you can tackle any programming problem you want. No other language can make as powerful a claim. Please join if you're in the SF Bay area, know C++, or would like to know C++.

The Association of C/C++ Users' San Francisco Bay Area chapter meets a few times a month in Mountain View, Berkeley, and San Francisco. We are loosely affiliated with the ACCU, our UK-based parent organization. Meetings are free and newcomers are welcome!
