A Guide to Parallel Programming – TechEd Events

Wednesday, June 2, 2010 – 4:00 AM

front_cover_small I’ll also be talking about the book at TechEd in New Orleans next week. I have one talk scheduled…

ARC205 | Patterns of Parallel Programming

Room 276, Tuesday 5:00pm – 6:15pm

Multi-core and HPC technologies are rapidly moving into the computing mainstream, allowing us to develop applications with improved performance, increased responsiveness, and reduced latency. The many established design patterns in this space can help developers and architects reuse proven approaches to solving many types of concurrency problems. This talk covers many of the key patterns and gives examples of how they can be implemented using the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 libraries of parallelism. (Part of a virtual workshop series on Patterns of Parallel Programming; aimed at experienced software developers who are relatively new to the parallel computing space but expect it to become more important to their work.)

I’ll also be giving away hard copies of the Beta containing the Preface and chapters 1, 2 and 5 covering; The Introduction, Parallel Loops and Futures and Continuation Tasks. You can also download this content as a PDF from the CodePlex site.

I’d like to talk to people who’ve read what we’ve written so far. I’ll be chairing an informal session the following day from 10:30am – 12:30pm. Venue TBD. You can also come and see me at the patterns & practices booth in the Exhibition Hall or talk to me after my talk.

The first forty people who give me feedback on the book will receive a free copy of the final version when it ships in October.

In summary…

Opportunities to talk about parallelism and the TPL:

My Talk – Room 276, Tuesday 5:00pm – 6:15pm.

My Q&A session – Architecture area of the TLC (next to the Dev Info desk), Wednesday 10:30am – 12:30pm.

The patterns & practices Booth – Exhibition Hall, All Week.

Hope to see you in New Orleans next week!
