Need to make your apps more responsive? Run faster? On today's multicore hardware, async and parallel programming may be the answer. This talk will introduce the new Task-oriented programming model in .NET 4, discuss its underlying execution, and demonstrate some of the higher-level constructs and patterns supported by the Task Parallel Library. A number of examples will be presented; and if time permits, we'll compare and contrast parallel programming in C# (imperative) vs. F# (functional) vs. LINQ (declarative).

Joe is an author, consultant and tenured professor of Computer Science, with a PhD from the U. of California, Irvine.  He has been specializing in Microsoft technologies since 1992, in particular Microsoft's parallel and high-performance computing initiatives.  This includes Windows HPC Server, cluster programming (MPI, SOA, LINQ to HPC, Excel), and many-core programming (TPL, PPL, OpenMP, CUDA).  Joe has co-authored two books on Windows development, hosted more than 60 MSDN webcasts, and taught courses worldwide.  He works for Pluralsight LLC, the U. of California, Irvine, and as a private consultant.  When he’s not working, Joe is an avid sailor, residing in the Chicago area with his wife and daughter.
