SYCL 2020 is an exciting update for C++ programmers looking to take advantage of accelerators. We have both had the pleasure of contributing to the SYCL specification, a book on SYCL, and the DPC++ open source project to implement SYCL into LLVM. We would like to share our pick for our favorite new features added to SYCL in the SYCL 2020 specification.  We offer these as our opinions as Intel engineers, not on behalf of Khronos.
