Getting Started with Boost.Asio: Timers and Serial Ports
by Richard Thomson
From the video description:
I/O operations are inherently asynchronous -- we don't know when input will arrive and when output will be generated. Network I/O can be particularly bothersome because of the long delays between sending a request and obtaining the response.
Boost.Asio is a cross-platform C++ library for network and low-level I/O programming that provides developers with a consistent asynchronous model using a modern C++ approach. Boost.Asio covers timers, serial ports, files, pipes and TCP/IP networking.
This month, Richard Thomson will give us an introduction to Boost.Asio concepts and asynchronous programming with this library. We'll look at how to use timers to notify our application of time passing and how to talk to serial ports asynchronously.
