One of our design goals for the Task Parallel Library is to integrate well into existing asynchronous mechanisms in the .NET Framework. And one of the most common concurrency-related patterns in the .NET Framework is the Asynchronous Programming Model (APM), which typically manifests as a BeginXx method that kicks off an asynchronous ope
Daniel Moth is back with a nice article introducing the preview release of Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework. Great work, Daniel!
For those of you that have examined the internals of the Task Parallel Library in our December '07 CTP release, you've likely noticed that the methods on the System.Threading.Parallel type are implemented on top of System.Threading.Tasks.Task type, and that they do so taking advantage of Task's self-replicating functionality. The idea be
Charles from Channel 9 sat down with several of us from the Parallel Computing Platform team to discuss the Task Parallel Library component of Parallel Extensions. A video of the conversation is now available on Channel9: https://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=384229. We hope you like it, and as always, feedback is
Burton Smith is a Technical Fellow at Microsoft and an industry leader in the fields of parallel and high-performance computing. As part of a new video series we've kicked off, the folks at Channel 9 have posted a terrific hour-long interview with Burton about the past, present, and future of parallel computing. Definitely check it
If you're reading this post, you most likely have an interest in parallel computing, writing concurrent software, and the like. Take that interest a step further, and help us make the manycore era a successful reality by coming to work on the Parallel Computing Platform team at Microsoft.We have a good number of positions available:
