Hi,

I want to ask a question on C++ Concurrency in Action.

- I want to know whether this book explain C++ concurrency in Windows environment or other OS environment?
Is there any difference between concurrency technique in Windows environment or other OS environment (e.g. Linux)?

Thanks.

There is nothing in the book that is specific to Windows or Linux or any other OS.

If you use the C++11 concurrency facilities then there is no difference between Windows and Linux; the difference comes in additional libraries and facilities that you use, especially GUI libraries.

Thanks for the reply.

One more question though, what are the skill level of C++ requirements needed in order to read this book? Is this book suitable for C++ beginner?

thanks.

The book assumes a reasonable level of C++ proficiency, and does not attempt to teach any C++ beyond the new C++11 features.

That said, I don't think there is anything that should scare you if you are familiar with using the Standard C++ library.
