Lock-Free Programming in C++1x by Tony Van Eerd

Here is a nice talk about lock-free programming in C++ by Tony Van Eerd at Boostcon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4Jdq4PtfPA



He gives some nice examples with std::atomic<>, talks about the ABA problem, etc.

He's going to give another talk soon at CppCon2014, so I'm really looking forward to it.


There is also some guy that's going to talk about wait-free data structures at CppCon2014 which I'm really looking forward to  ;)
