In the spirit of doing a few things at the same time, Microsoft’s Parallel Computing Platform (PCP) team has unveiled ‘Microsoft Parallel Extensions’ for the .Net Framework 3.5.
Boy, I love parallel processing. It reminds me of the days when we used to put a lot of brain power into developing custom thread pooling in C++. Once upon a time I worked for an anti-virus (startup) company and we did some awesome work in processing files in parallel. Anyway….
Now, I guess this means that, down on the corner, the Concurrency and Coordination Runtime (CCR) will be relegated to the world of robotics (it is currently exposed/released through the Robotics Studio)?
Once I’ve had a play with the new Parallel extensions, I’ll do a write-up of the differences between the CCR and the Parallel Extensions.
