We are approaching an asymptote for processor speeds using current technology. To overcome this, computer power is increasing by scaling the number of processors used within a system. This increase in multithreading capabilities, however, complicates development considerably. In this geekSpeak, we'll chat with Microsoft Regional Director Mark Michaelis about how .NET 4.0 simplifies this paradigm with new APIs that leverage the power of recent .NET language extensions and .NET 4.0 API enhancements - Task Parallel Library and ParallelLINQ. Your hosts for this geekSpeak are Lynn Langit and Mithun Dhar.
The geekSpeak webcast series brings you industry experts in a "talk-radio" format hosted by developer evangelists from Microsoft. These experts share their knowledge and experience about a particular developer technology and are ready to answer your questions in real time during the webcast. To ask a question in advance of the live webcast, or for post-show resources, be sure to visit the geekSpeak blog.
