Concurrency in Modern C++

This class has been cancelled.

Concurrency in Modern C++ is a three-day online training course with programming examples, taught by Rainer Grimm.

Course Description

This class gives you a detailed insight into the multithreading facilities of C++. Starting with the foundation in C++11, continuing with the parallel STL in C++17, and closing with the concurrency features in C++20. Additionally, we will have a more in-depth look into the C++ memory model, consisting of the atomics and the various memory orders in C++. This insight will provide you with a better understanding of the general concurrency features of C++.


Participants should have a basic knowledge of the C++ language and the fundamentals of multithreading.

In the class, I will give you a concise introduction to the topic. This introduction provides the starting point for the exercises; therefore, you should bring your laptop with you including a C++17 compiler.

You will get in return the training material consisting of the presentation, the exercises, and the solutions to the exercises. Additionally, each participant gets a coupon for my LeanPub book “Concurrency with Modern C++”.
