Boost C++ Library Contributions

Boost libraries are a broad collection of peer-reviewed libraries designed and licensed to be of maximum use to the C++ community, with many becoming part of the C++ standard. My modest contributions included:

  • Bug reports and patches for the Thread library .
  • Serialization / marshaling for the Unordered containers. unordered_map and unordered_set were adopted into std:: from boost. And they were originally called boost::hash_set and boost::hash_map.
  • Documentation enhancements.
  • Regression test running across a variety of windows, Linux, and FreeBSD platforms.
  • Boost.Guild efforts to support library authors in bug/issue resolution c. 2010.
