Parallelism in C++ has become more accessible thanks to the plethora of libraries developed by the industry in the last decade or so. The time has come to bring the innovations developed in these libraries into the mainstream – the ISO C++ Standard. In this talk we’ll dive into a couple of proposals that are currently on the agenda for the next major version of the C++ Standard – the Task Regions and the Parallel STL. Together, these proposals aim to make writing portable parallel code in C++ easy and productive.


Artur Laksberg leads the Visual C++ Libraries team at Microsoft. His interests include concurrency, programming language and library design, and modern C++. Artur is one of the co-authors of the Parallel STL proposal; his team has implemented a prototype of the proposal.
