In this episode of 10-4, we start taking a look at Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework. We'll look at some of the surface-area of the Parallel Extensions API and provide you with enough information to start working with it yourself in the Visual Studio
2010 CTP VPC.
Remember that we are running these bits within a virtual machine with a single virtual processor, so you won't be able to see the performance improvements from the library. However, you will be able to start get a feel for the API itself. In future episodes, we will dive into deeper details of the various parts of Parallel Extensions.
Also, in next week's episode, Jonathan Carter will be back to talk about another new feature in ASP.NET 4.0, so make sure to stay tuned for that!
