image My eighty-fourth podcast is up. Scott chats on the Microsoft campus with Stephen Toub, a Microsoft Developer working on a team coming up with new ways to make concurrency programming easier with .NET. We get pretty deep and pretty philosophical about concurrency, threading, and parallelism. Also check out an older Channel 9 Video (just released) on the topic as well.

If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Hey Now Scott,
I liked this episode, as always I learned a few things. I liked Stephen's predition in 2012 everyone has a 16 core processor so let's us it.

The IO-bound speed bump that you mentioned is a good one and I've run into it many times. You can make your application as thread-happy as you want, but at the end of the day, IO (database, in most cases) will hold you back.

So that's another show idea: exploring ways to parallelize or reduce the database bottlenecks and other IO.
