CppCon 2015: Niall Douglas “Racing The File System” – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/09

Cool presentation on avoiding data races and race conditions when doing file system operations. It includes lots of conceptual and API suggestions on many operating systems (explaining what works where and why not), plus locking tips.

Biggest takeaway for me: always use handles to any object, and avoid static paths like a bad flue.

Well worth watching!

The slides are at [WayBack] CppCon2015/Racing the Filesystem – Niall Douglas – CppCon 2015.pdf at master · CppCon/CppCon2015 · GitHub
