This open access book is a modern guide for all C++ programmers to learn Threading Building Blocks (TBB). Written by TBB and parallel programming experts, this book reflects their collective decades of experience in developing and teaching parallel programming with TBB, offering their insights in an approachable manner. Throughout the book the authors present numerous examples and best practices to help you become an effective TBB programmer and leverage the power of parallel systems.Pro TBB starts with the basics, explaining parallel algorithms and C++'s built-in standard template library for parallelism. You'll learn the key concepts of managing memory, working with data structures and how to handle typical issues with synchronization. Later chapters apply these ideas to complex systems to explain performance tradeoffs, mapping common parallel patterns, controlling threads and overhead, and extending TBB to program heterogeneous systems or system-on-chips.
What You'll LearnUse Threading Building Blocks to produce code that is portable, simple, scalable, and more understandableReview best practices for parallelizing computationally intensive tasks in your applications
Integrate TBB with other threading packages
Create scalable, high performance data-parallel programs
Work with generic programming to write efficient algorithms
Who This Book Is For
C++ programmers learning to run applications on multicore systems, as well as C or C++ programmers without much experience with templates. No previous experience with parallel programming or multicore processors is required.

"Pro TBB ... is an invaluable book ... . The book provides comprehensive coverage of a full-fledged model of parallelism. Besides the TBB constructs, various mechanisms that address issues of exception handling, task partitioning, concurrent data structures, mutual exclusion, granularity, and task-thread affinity are elaborated and evaluated in great detail. The first part of the book is a light introduction to TBB, and the second part provides an in-depth presentation with examples and a performance analysis of TBB constructs." (B.
