Have you ever parallelized a C or C++ program? Then you got a slowdown first, didn’t you? Parallelization is a tough call because of data dependencies hiding behind pointers, unclear multithreading overheads, unexpected processor and OS behaviour, let alone potential starvation and deadlocks. Luckily, in the past 40 years computer engineers have been constantly accumulating best practices of industry-proven solutions to common concurrency challenges. They call them parallelization patterns.
