Developing concurrent applications is hard. Making them robust and responsive is even more challenging. The new Asynchronous Agents library, Parallel Pattern Library and parallel debugging and profiling support in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 simplify the situation, enabling you to develop I/O- and computationally-intensive applications that offload work from the UI and that make good use of available resources. Come for a deep dive into the power of task, actor and dataflow programming in Microsoft Visual C++ 2010. Learn how it can help you to write correct, efficient, and scalable applications.
