Microsoft’s Parallel Processing Framework
4 days ago I wrote about parallel processing.
Sun and Microsoft are constantly working on improving the Java and .NET frameworks. And by the time the average programmer needs it, both will have plenty of support for easy threading.
Today, via Public Sector Developer Weblog:
Microsoft is working on a set of Extensions for the .NET Framework 3.5 (Visual Studio 2008) that will make it dramatically easier for Developers to build “managed code” parallel process applications.
The CTP is now available. I hadn’t heard about it before today, but apparently the word has been out for a few months. There’s a Parallel Programming Team blog, an MSDN Magazine article, and a Hanselminutes podcast about the framework.
I haven’t tried it yet (my computer only has a single core), but it looks interesting.
