Learn how to prepare for the new challenges in developing and tuning concurrent applications. Hear about important steps in the creation of or conversion to parallel applications with demonstrations of the parallel performance analysis and optimization
tools in the next release of Microsoft Visual Studio. See how to identify opportunities for parallelism and how to exploit those opportunities by choosing applicable coding patterns using existing or future programming models. Finally, watch a demonstration
that shows how to optimize parallel code by focusing on common sources of inefficiency such as I/O and synchronization.
