WDCIL Presentation and Demos

This evening I gave a talk on the Task Parallel Library (TPL) and the asynchronous programming features of C# 5.0 & .NET 4.5 at the Israeli Web developers user group. Thank you all for coming, I had a lot of fun!Although the TPL has been around in release for for more than 3 years, I’m still surprised to find developers who know little about and don’t use it. This is unfortunate, as I consider the TPL one of the best parts of .NET. I wish more developers learn it and use it. The same goes for C# 5.0. For...

Another way to get performance scalability is simply to use multiple machines, running some application or parts of it at the same time, hopefully distributing the workload appropriately and communicating if and as required to get the final result. Combining the two techniques (multiple cores and multiple machines) can be even more powerful. I have been recently introduced to the Microsoft...
