Visualize this! Concurrent Collections for C/C++

Hello and welcome to another episode of Visualize this! where we talk about topics relating to Visual computing. I am Arti Gupta community manager for games development at Intel Software Network

This week we had Kath Knobe (Research Scientist at Intel) and Ganesh Rao (Technical Consulting Engineer) talk about Concurrent Collections for C/C++. Kath and Ganesh went through the specifics of the product and how being domain independent this can be used by game developers doing parallel programming.
