Concurrency Runtime

The Concurrency Runtime programming framework for C++ helps you write robust, scalable, and responsive parallel applications. It raises the level of abstraction so that you do not have to manage the infrastructure details that are related to concurrency. You can also use it to specify scheduling policies that meet the quality of service demands of your applications. The following documents can help you start working with the Concurrency Runtime.
