Best video in the series so far! I particularly liked Patrick's observation that the platfom and tools need to abstract way core differences (CPU vs. GPGPU) as much as possible. It's just not economic to expect the majority of developers to mentally shift
gear and write in some impoverished subset of C in order to target a GPGPC. The platform need to be smarter at resource management and dynamic code analysis to provide best fit (subject to availablity) execution targets (core-types) for code.
Is there any plan in CLR to use Java like “Hotspot engine” technique?
Anders Hejlsberg mentioned it before in an interview that it’s possible to do JIT first and then do deeper/smarter optimization after a while once CLR get more information about the running program. So, is it possible that we will see this type of technology
in the future CLR?
Thanks. Enjoyable. Is the Dispatcher Lock video coming, or did I miss it somehow? Thanks guys
