Divide-and-Conquer (DaC) is a sequential programming paradigm which models a large class of algorithms used in real-life applications. Although suitable to extract parallelism in a straightforward way, the parallel implementation of DaC algorithms still requires some expertise in parallel programming tools by the programmer.

In this paper we aim at providing to non-expert programmers a high-level solution for fast prototyping parallel DaC programs on multicores with minimal programming effort.

Following the rationale of parallel design pattern methodology, we design a C++11-compliant template interface for developing parallel DaC programs. The interface is implemented using different back-end frameworks (i.e. OpenMP, Intel TBB and FastFlow) supporting source code reuse and a certain amount of performance portability.

Experiments on a 24-core Intel server show the effectiveness of our approach: with a reduced programming effort the programmer easily prototypes parallel versions with performance comparable with hand-made parallelizations.
