Parallel Computing Platform
by Niklas Gustafsson, software architect at Microsoft Corporation
With Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft is shipping a broad set of technologies to support programmers in their quest of taking full advantage of the emerging parallel hardware. In this talk, I will present these technologies and give an overview of the kinds of algorithms targeted. Supporting both native-code development in C++ and managed-code development in C#, Visual Basic and F#, the new libraries and language features have a lot to offer the parallel programmer.
