April 2010 Meeting of Israel Dot Net Developers User Group (IDNDUG)

Note the special date of this meeting - Thursday April 29, 2010

The April 2010 meeting of the Israel Dot Net Developers User Group will be held on Thursday April 29, 2010.   This meeting will focus on parallel programming – in general and the support in VS 2010.  Our speaker will be Asaf Shelly, a recognized expert in parallel programming.


(1) Parallel Programming in Microsoft's Environments. The fundamentals of Windows have always been parallel. Starting with message queues, File System as an advanced lock engine, Windows NT Kernel as a fully parallel system, and the advanced parallel API. These originate in parallel system design and are reflected with the .Net API.

(2) Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4.0. Microsoft .Net Parallel Extensions allow fast and simple utilization of all CPU cores. With fast and simple also come elementary bugs. We will show how and when to use this new technology, when and how not to use, and we will ask the important question: Do we need a multi-core CPU in order to benefit from a good parallel design.

As always, we'll have our special "Hatzilu" session at our meeting. So please come prepared to discuss your most frustrating problems (or at least some of them!) and to share some of your own techniques and solutions that you have found useful in your applications.
