Instructor Interview: Anthony Williams / More Concurrent Thinking in C++: Beyond the Basics

Kevin Carpenter interviews Anthony Williams about his extensive experience in concurrent programming in C++ and his upcoming CppCon Academy class, More Concurrent Thinking in C++: Beyond the Basics being taught in person in Aurora, Colorado immediately prior to the conference.

A developer and trainer with over 20 years of experience, Anthony Williams is also the author of C++ Concurrency In Action: Practical Multithreading.  He helped author and coauthor various papers on threading for the C++ Standards Committee that led to the inclusion of threads library in the C++ 11 Standard.

During their discussion Anthony explains where he gained much of his experience and interest in concurrency.  He also talks about where it all started for him with Pthread, working with Boost::Threads and how that lead to the development of his book and extended into his course which has been improved year after year.
