BUG.NET/BSDA Meeting for April 13 – Parallel Programming in .Net 4.0

leave a comment »

The first combined meeting of the BUG.NET / BSDA will take place on April 13, 2010. Speaker and MVP Jeff Barnes will present Parallel Programming in .Net 4.0.

Given the continually growing number of cores without a significant increase in the processor clock rate, it is no longer an option to simply say “we can just get a better processor” when we need an application to run faster. To increase performance, parallel programming is becoming become a necessity. Like it or not, there is a good chance you will need to leverage parallel programming at some point in the not too distant future. Fortunately, .NET 4.0 has introduced great support to easily tap into the computing power of multiple cores and multiple processors. We will take a tour of the new Task Parallel Library (TPL), parallel support added for LINQ, and enhancements in VS2010 that make multithreaded debugging dramatically easier. Come find out how easy parallel programming can be.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm with food, and there will be some swag for the end of the meeting. As usual our host will be the folks at New Horizons in Homewood AL.
