Going Parallel with C++11
SESSION: Going Parallel with C++11
EVENT TYPE: HPC Educator
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
As hardware designers turn to multi-core CPUs and GPUs, software developers must embrace parallel programming to increase performance. No single approach has yet established itself as the “right way” to develop parallel software. However, C++ has long been used for performance-oriented work, and it’s a safe bet that any viable approach involves C++. This position has been strengthened by ratification of the new C++0x standard, officially referred to as “C++11”. This interactive session will introduce the new features of C++11 related to parallel programming, including type inference, lambda expressions, closures, and multithreading. The workshop will close with a brief discussion of other technologies, in particular higher-level abstractions such as Intel Cilk Plus and Microsoft PPL.
