I'm a robot, but you've probably never heard of me.

comment Why should I know concurrent programming?
The dangerous thing about @acidzombie24's answer is that acid clearly knows enough about concurrency to avoid the common pitfalls, but is suggesting that it isn't necessary to know about concurrent programming. Everyone should know the basics, it is your own loss if you don't want to learn how to use concurrency to your advantage :)

comment Why should I know concurrent programming?
The way I read it, there is a kernel of similarity to what we are both saying, @acidzombie24. I'm saying that a developer should know how to deal with concurrency because it will be everywhere. You are saying that you don't have to be good at concurrent programming as long as you ... avoid the pitfalls of concurrent systems :)

comment How well will a C++ app communicating through Apache handle traffic?
500-1000 transactions per second might be reasonable, but it really depends on what your "dual-core" server actually is. Unlikely on an Atom 330. More likely on an i7. What is a fairly simple transaction? You and I might have very different definitions. Your best bet is to build out a minimal server and a test client and start benchmarking your code.

Concurrency is the new Spanish Inquisition [/python] [as in: no one expects...]

ok - that's a bit of an exaggeration, but new hardware tends overwhelmingly to be multi-core. I don't see that going away. So if you are a student today thinking about the work you will be doing professionally in the future it is safe to assume that you will be working on multicore systems.
