C++ coroutines have not yet been standardised, but are available today in Visual Studio 2015 (coming soon to clang/llvm) in the form of the stackless coroutines/resumable functions presented at CppCon2016.

This session will look beyond the canonical examples of generators and asynchronous IO to see if coroutines can be leveraged in the pursuit of C++ DSLs to make concurrency easier to work with for humans - "Concurrency at Human Scale".

As of writing, the investigations and technology behind this talk are still evolving, so the outcome is not a foregone conclusion.
