Over 60 recipes to help you create ultra-fast multithreaded applications using C++ with rules, guidelines, and best practices

Overview Create multithreaded applications using the power of C++ Upgrade your applications with parallel execution in easy-to-understand stepsStay up to date with new Windows 8 concurrent tasksAvoid classical synchronization problemsUnderstand Windows API and concurrent execution What you will learn from this book Use an object-oriented programming model with inheritance, overloading, and polymorphismSolve common Interprocess Communication problems and avoid deadlocks or starvation problems in your application developmentManage threads efficiently using the CThread classExplore .NET CLI/C++ features as well as synchronization objects and techniquesMake use of parallel techniques in code designUse machine resources in concurrent executionEnable programs to work with each other using Message PassingAvoid classic synchronization problems In Detail

Creating multithreaded applications is a present-day approach towards programming. With the power of C++, you can easily create various types of applications and perform parallelism and optimizations in your existing work. This book is a practical, powerful, and easy-to-understand guide to C++ multithreading. You will learn how to benefit from the multithreaded approach and enhance your development skills to build better applications. This book will not only help you avoid problems when creating parallel code, but also help you to understand synchronization techniques. The end goal of the book will be to impart various multithreading concepts that will enable you to do parallel computing and concurrent programming quickly and efficiently.


The book is an easy-to-follow guide for creating multi-threaded applications using C++. Each topic is thoroughly explained with multiple illustrations. Many algorithms, such as Dinning Philosophers Problem give you thorough explanations that will help you to understand and solve concurrent tasks.

Who this book is for

The book is intended for enterprise developers and programmers who wish to make use of C++ capabilities to learn the multithreaded approach. Knowledge of multithreading along with experience in C++ is an added advantage. However it is not a prerequisite.

Miloš Ljumović was born on July 26 in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro in Europe, where he attended elementary and high school. He also went to music school to play the guitar. He studied Computer Science in the Faculty of Natural Science and Mathematics, Montenegro University. The following year, he picked up interest in operating systems, which he majored in, in his Master's degree. In December 2009, along with his friend Danijel, he started his company, Programmer, along with a highly qualified team to provide high-tech IT solutions. Soon, many skilled developers joined them, and from this collaboration, many applications and system software, web applications, and database systems have arisen. His clients were not only the Government of Montenegro, but also some major domestic companies. He developed a new age financial system for the national domain company, MeNet; he also developed video recognition software, along with pictures and other digital media types. He also developed many fascinating websites and other web applications. The list of customers is too long to be incorporated here. After working only for a few months as an international consultant, he worked with an American company in a project involving large e-commerce businesses and data scraping from the Internet. All this was the spark to open his new company, EXPERT.ITS.ME, in the beginning of July 2014. Besides development, he provides consulting services and helps small businesses in the IT sector to manage problems while inspiring them to be and think big. He is also a member of the Committee of National Chamber (ICT) of Montenegro and MENSA. He likes programming in C/C++/C# even though he is skilled in HTML, PHP, TSQL, and more while going toward his dream of developing his own operating system. In his spare time, he plays tennis, dives, hunts, or plays chess. He favors brainstorming with his team and fresh, modern ideas in the area of IT and computer science. He is continuously going towards new beginnings and next-generation software solutions. He specially likes teaching computer science and math students through private classes and courses and shaping them to be qualified programmers and helping them find all the beauty of science. To see what his interests are and what he is doing, visit his company's website (http://expert.its.me) or his website (http://milos.expert.its.me), or contact him at milos@expert.its.me.
