Next week, the NYC .NET Developers group and the NY ALT.NET user group are hosting a joint meeting on Tuesday, June 29th with a special guest. Former New Yorker, Stephen Toub is returning to town from Redmond to talk about Parallel Programming with .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010. Stephen was based in NY for many years working for MSDN Magazine before moving out west to work on the Parallel Computing team at Microsoft.
Please register right away to get a seat and be on the building security list! (Registration will likely close on Monday morning.)
Parallel Programming with .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010
Abstract: In the past, introducing concurrency and parallelism into libraries and applications was difficult, time consuming, and error-prone. However, as the hardware industry shifts towards multi-core and many-core processors, the key to high-performance applications is parallelism. The .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010 offer solutions to help make coding, debugging, and profiling concurrent applications significantly easier. In this interactive deep-dive, we’ll examine Parallel LINQ-to-Objects (PLINQ), the Task Parallel Library (TPL), new coordination and synchronization types, and Visual Studio tooling support in order to provide a look at the next generation of parallel programming with .NET. Bio: Stephen Toub is a Principal Program Manager on the Parallel Computing Platform team at Microsoft. He’s excited to be back in Manhattan, where he lived and worked for several years.
