We've spent a fair amount of time on Channel 9 discussing
concurrency and parallelism
with various people. In particular, the folks who are writing the Parallel Computing Platform. Everything we've talked about up to this point has been targeted at .NET developers. After watching all the videos on TPL, for example,
you'd think that only .NET developers will get to benefit from Task-based concurrent programming. Of course, this is not the case. Native developers (C++) will be given an equivalent level of concurrency abstraction (and in some cases more) via the native
Concurrency Runtime and associated tools.
Here, native (C++ focused) Parallel Computing Platform team members Rick Malloy, Niklas Gustafsson, Don McCrady and Channel 9 veteran Stephen Toub join me in a conversation covering our concurrency platform tools and runtime specifically designed for C++ developers.
