As PC processors explode from one or two to now eight processors, there is an urgent need for programmers to master concurrent programming. This book dives deep into the latest technologies available to programmers for creating professional parallel applications using C#, .NET 4, and Visual Studio 2010. The book covers task-based programming, coordination data structures, PLINQ, thread pools, asynchronous programming model, and more. It also teaches other parallel programming techniques, such as SIMD and vectorization.
Teaches programmers professional-level, task-based, parallel programming with C#, .NET 4, and Visual Studio 2010
Covers concurrent collections, coordinated data structures, PLINQ, thread pools, asynchronous programming model, Visual Studio 2010 debugging, and parallel testing and tuning
Explores vectorization, SIMD instructions, and additional parallel libraries
Master the tools and technology you need to develop thread-safe concurrent applications for multi-core systems, with Professional Parallel Programming with C#.
From the Back Cover
Gain a solid understanding of parallel programming with C# 4, Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET 4 Framework
Are you maximizing the processing power in your multi-core computer systems? With this resource, you discover how to do exactly that, while gaining insight into concurrent programming with tasks to create professional parallel applications using C# 4, .Net 4, and Visual Studio 2010. You learn other parallel programming techniques, including modern single instruction, multiple data instructions and vectorization. Plus, you explore the possibilities offered by modern parallel libraries and advanced Intel tools with C#. Use the new lightweight coordination structures to tackle the most complex concurrent programming problems and develop your own customized solutions.
