Guru of the Week

From 1997 to 2003, Sutter regularly created C++ programming problems and posted them on the Usenet newsgroup comp.lang.c++.moderated, under the title Guru of the Week. The problems generally addressed common misconceptions or poorly understood concepts in C++. Sutter later published expanded versions of many of the problems in his first two books, Exceptional C++ and More Exceptional C++. New articles, mostly related to C++11, were published since November 2011.

The Free Lunch Is Over

"The Free Lunch Is Over" is an article from Herb Sutter published in 2005. It stated that microprocessor serial-processing speed is reaching a physical limit, which leads to two main consequences:

  • processor manufacturers will focus on products that better support multithreading (such as multi-core processors), and
  • software developers will be forced to develop massively multithreaded programs as a way to better use such processors.
