If you needed one more reason to register for DevTeach here it is. I'm giving a talk about parallel extensions. Here is the teaser:
A glimpse into the parallel universe
There is no more free lunch! The Moore's law is over. If we want more power we need to cross the processor barrier and do work in parallel. In June 2008, Microsoft released its second CTP of Parallel Extensions library. Come with me to see how easy it will be to make that leap of faith into the world of parallel processing. We will see how Task, concurrent collections, lazy initialization, parallel Linq and other tools can help us in this endeavour.
