F# and the Task Parallel Library

Stephen Toub - MSFT

Over on his blog, Don Syme has a post about F# and Parallel Extensions:

“Over the coming year I expect we’ll be seeing this library used very widely from F#, and we’ll eventually be using the TPL as a key underlying technology for F# asynchronous workflows. TPL excels at CPU-intensive parallelism and exploiting multiple cores, especially in conjunction with functional programming. This makes it ideal for use with F#.”

Exciting stuff. In the meantime, you can see an example of the Task Parallel Library being used from F# on Jurgen van Gael’s blog. Thanks for the example, Jurgen!
