, Huseyin Yildiz, Daan Leijen, Stephen Toub and I gathered in a conference room in building 122 to dig into the Task Parallel Library infrastructure. You've heard about the
Parallel Computing Platform
a few months ago in an interview with
Anders Hejlsberg and Joe Duffy
. We didn't go too
deep in that talk. It was an introduction to the Parallel Computing Platform.
Here, we take a dive down into the technical rabbit hole with Daan, Joe, Stephen and Huseyin.
Daan is an MSR reseacher who's work has been instrumental in bringing TPL and Parallel Extensions to life. Of course, Joe is the guy who invented PLINQ (he wrote the original Think Week paper that impressed Bill) and is a lead developer on the Parallel Computing
Platform team. Stephen is the Program Manager (and is the one driving and scheduling many of the interviews you will see covering Parallel Computing Platform here on C9 - Thanks, Stephen!) and Huseyin is a developer who recently joined the group and is already
making a big impact.
Most of the time here is spent on the whiteboard with Daan. Make some time for this conversation. There's an awful lot to learn here.
