The Case for Lockless Concurrency

A session at CUSEC 2012

Saturday 21st January, 2012

2:15pm to 3:00pm (EST)

In this tutorial we’ll learn how to exploit parallelism without locks. We’ll examine lockless shared-memory concurrency using software transactional memory, and use the actor model to show why computational models of the inherently parallel real world are easiest to construct and reason about using concurrency-oriented programming languages. We’ll see why immutable state is desirable in concurrent programs, and how to model the transient and stateful world without explicit mutation.
