After lunch, I went to the Patterns of Parallel Programming with .NET 4 lecture by Stephen Toub. Stephen begun showing how we can do parallel programming with the ThreadPool and moved from there to show how we can convert the code the the new Parallel library.
(Stephen, of course)
(ThreadPool stuff we all know and love)
(Parallel stuff we’ll all learn to love)
Unfortunately for me, I had to leave the session early since I had to join the other consultants of Sela to go meet Jason Zander, but I’ll try to catch up on the session on the TechEd website’s recordings since I’m teaching these stuff now, and I wanted to make sure I’m not missing any hidden gems in the framework.
The meeting with Jason was very nice, we had the opportunity to ask him questions we had about Visual Studio 2010, Silverlight, and other technologies we are working on. Jason was cooperative and answered as much as he could. I myself was reassured about the future of WCF and Silverlight regarding stuff like WS-* support in SL (if you want to know more – send me an email).
Now I’m at the Suite, talking business with people, and later on I’ll go to the party to relax a bit.
See you on Tuesday…
