PDC '09 Video For Parallel and Asynchronous Programming

Just wanted to link to this for future reference. Been watching this while trying to test a deadlock from hell (I *HATE* WinDbg!!), thought it was interesting.

It never dawned on me until watching this video that F# with its extensive "automagical" parallel-oriented semantics would a) be a killer toolset for Silverlight and WPF for producing very highly responsive UI, and b) be a brilliantly terse yet readable language (a cross between Python and PowerShell, except only in the good ways) to produce asynchronous code that is much easier to maintain than the C# equivalent.

About the author

Jon Davis (aka "stimpy77") has been a programmer, developer, and consultant for web and Windows software solutions professionally since 1997, with experience ranging from OS and hardware support to DHTML programming to IIS/ASP web apps to Java network programming to Visual Basic applications to C# desktop apps.
 
Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."

Jon was previously employed as a senior .NET developer at a very well-known Internet services company whom you're more likely than not to have directly done business with. However, this blog and all of jondavis.net have no affiliation with, and are not representative of, his former employer in any way.
