HPX at C++Now! 2012

C++Now! 2012 will start May 14th. Based on the successful traditions of 5 years of BoostCon, which was the main face-to-face event for all things C++ and Boost, this new conference will present leading speakers from the whole C++ community. The conference highlights the new state of C++ (from the new Standard), and the need to continually look to the future so the language remains useful to the C++ community. Its focus will be the new C++11 language Standard and as usual Boost: what’s new in C++, its Standard library, and in the Boost libraries, how to write and maintain them, how to evangelize or to deploy Boost within your organization. The new C++ Standard, but also the infrastructure and process of Boost, its vision and mission – no matter what you are interested in, it all comes together in the C++Now! sessions. In short, C++Now! promises to be one of the major events in 2012 when it comes to C++. Continue reading

Integrating HPX into existing applications

Having your application work with HPX is unfortunately not as simple as just linking against it. However it can be rather straightforward or rather complex based on the type of application that is trying to be integrated. The complexity derives from the overall design of the application. If the application was designed to be parallel, then integrating should be relatively straightforward. However HPX is not some magic wand that will make your application work in parallel. Applications that are serial or that rely too heavily on global variables will have a more difficult time in integrating. Most parallel applications have already identified the sections of code that do the most work and have abstracted them out to use the parallel library of their choice.
