I did a very quick and choc-full of ramblings talk summarising Parallel LINQ (PLINQ) at the weekends Developer Developer Developer Melbourne.
The message I wanted to get across was have a look at the Parallel Extensions in the Task Parallel Library of .NET, it can help speed up a few longer running tasks that might exist in your application and that it’s easy. Check out the parallel extension teams MSDN blog for the latest stuff.
The intent of this quick post is to clarify what I was rambling on about, and to offer some links to old posts, my PowerPoint slides that would have made my talk go a little smoother.
- The slides from my 2009 Melbourne Patterns & Practices Group PLINQ talk
- My post covering the main objective of PLINQ tests on the StackOverflow dataset
- The Channel 9 MSDN video I mentioned – Joe Duffy and Igor Ostrovsky: Parallel LINQ under the hood
- My DEMO CODE* up on GitHub
*Note: This is in fact demo-ware just to perform PLINQ benchmarks.
