Game Development as seen through the Blum Filter

Multithreading

with 7 comments

Yes, I’ve been absent from this blog since forever. I can’t help it. There was lots of work to be done at work – we released a tiny little game last week. There was preparation for SIGGRAPH. No, I didn’t give a talk yet, but at least it was the first one where I got a shout out(pg.35). Hey, it’s a start! ;)

And then there’s the biggest issue – I tried to go for a long-form blog, and it’s not working for me. Sometimes, long is good. And sometimes, I just need to throw out a short link. Like today.

If you’ve ever done cross-platform multithreading, you hate it. There’s no unified API, not all operations are supported on all platforms… in short, it sucks. Thankfully, @bjoernknafla to the rescue. He has written amp, a cross-platform threading library, and made the amp source available on github under a BSD license. And, what makes me even happier, he stuck to a C-style API.

So my threading issues are solved. Both in my source code and in terms of resource starvation of this blog. Expect higher throughput!

  1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!

  2. the top heading isn’t aligned correctly and results in display difficulties for me, just helping you discover…

  3. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Fantastic blog!

  4. Another thing you can do is create an account with More Share and insert their button into your pages. The blog is authored by Carol Bradley Bursack, author of “Minding our Elders: Caregivers Share Their Personal Stories” who answers a variety of questions from her blog readers.

  5. Your job posting will likely be automatically shared while using thousands of members accessing that website. Without specific information job seekers are much less likely to use.
