Last year gave the same session on Parallel Programming twice: at PDC2008 and Tech Ed EMEA 2008 (identical content). The fact that those sessions ended up on the #3 and #2 spots in the ranking order, speaks to the fact that people are really interested and accepting of this topic. It is also testament that the technology Microsoft is releasing with Visual Studio 2010 is very compelling. So I invite you here to take my content and reuse it in your local regions!
The recordings (and slides) of the two identical sessions are available so you can learn by watching them: links from here
I have also captured the session content on this blog:
1. Briefly introduce the manycore shift
and clarify the release vehicle for Parallel Extensions
2. Run one of the samples that ship with Parallel Extensions
to demonstrate the end user benefit (no code shown at this point).
3. Clarify the potential difference between parallelism and multi-threading
4. DEMOnstrate Fine Grained Parallelism
via the Task-based Programming model
built on the new ThreadPool
5. DEMOnstrate Debugging Parallel Applications
6. DEMOnstrate Structured Parallelism via the static Parallel class, e.g. Imperative Data Parallelism
7. DEMOnstrate Declarative Data Parallelism: PLINQ
Many conferences/user groups are interested in technical sessions on Parallel Programming in .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010
so use the links above to learn and share.
