I delivered a session on parallel at NxtGenUg Birmingham last night. As well as covering the new features in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 I also gave a heads up on Axum, an incubator project for a new programming language for parallel development as well as a  brief look at Concurrent Basic, a research project from Microsoft. You might also want to check out a post I did introducing Axum.

P.S. The session didn’t quite go to plan as it turned out I had too much content for the slot. However it was enjoyable and there were lots of good questions from the audience (and nice biscuits).
