Microsoft is holding a full day seminar called Multicore Programming on the .NET Platform. This event is unaffiliated with SF#, but since many people are drawn to F# because of parallel programming, I thought it would be of interest.  What you'll learn can be applied to any .NET language.

An excerpt from the event's description:

"This 1-day workshop will introduce parallel programming support in .NET 4, and move rapidly from concepts to concrete examples. Topics include the new task-oriented programming model, exploiting data & task parallelism in your applications, design patterns for exposing parallelism, Task Parallel Library (TPL), Parallel LINQ, new concurrent data structures for more efficient parallel access, and proper exception handling in the presence of parallelism. We’ll also discuss cutting-edge Visual Studio 2010 tools for debugging and profiling of parallel apps, as well as tool support from Microsoft Research. The workshop will be demo-rich, with complete source code provided."

"About the speaker… Joe Hummel, aka “drjoe”, is a long-term member of the Microsoft community, having started with Visual Basic in 1992 and today working on parallel programming and high-performance computing. He’s co-authored two books on software development, delivered over 60 webcasts for MSDN, and taught hundreds of courses world-wide.
