Channel 9 Video: Parallel Computing in Native Code: New Trends and Old Friends – Damien Watkins and others
Recently our colleagues over at PCP (the Parallel Computing Platform team) have been doing a number of Channel 9 videos – on their most recent taping they asked Damien Watkins from VC++ to join them. Why? Well the focus of the video was around the journey towards getting the PCP bits shaped and shipped in VS2010. Damien has been the VC++ Program Manger (PM) managing that relationship. He also works on many of our C++0x and Libraries features, which turned out to be a fortunate match for a few reasons, firstly ConcRT/PPL benefits from using some new C++0x features (for example lambdas and support for transporting exceptions between threads) and secondly since the ConcRT runtime ships in the CRT and the PPL ships as a VC++ library. We hope you enjoy the video.
