I would say that the free book you posted ( probably over-complicates things. It may be useful just as a general reference, but it doesn’t have much about the built-in thread library in C++11.

Again, I would avoid ‘Professional Multicore Programming’ as it was released before C++11. In my opinion there’s absolutely no need for using POSIX threads or any other third-party concurrency library now that we have the built-in one.
I haven’t read ‘C++ Concurrency in Action’, but it looks like a great book about concurrency in C++11.

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
