PDC 2008 – Concurrency and .NET

Concurrent programming is becoming essential for developers as multi-core processors are the de-facto standard.

So its not that surprising that in the current PDC Microsoft has devoted several sessions to multi-threaded programming. You can see the slides from the pre PDC session on Concurrent, Multi-core Programming on Windows and .NET.


One of tomorrow’s sessions (29/10) caught my eye – Research: Concurrency Analysis Platform and Tools for Finding Concurrency Bugs. As one of the developers working on Typemock Racer I’m interested to see Microsoft take on multi thread code analysis and bug finding.


It should be interesting to see Microsoft’s has up their sleeve – but until then you can get Racer right now and see what’s it all about.
