CodeRage 9 – Parallel Programming Library: Create Responsive Apps with Tasks, Futures and Parallel Loops

Parallel Programming Library: Create Responsive Apps with Tasks, Futures and Parallel Loops must be the longest title I ever used for a session. I hope you found this introduction into parallel programming with the new TTask, TTask.Future en TParallel.For loop useful.

The replays of this and other sessions of Coderage 9 are now available on YouTube here:

As a last minute note: when using Synchronize inside a TTask.Run AND using TTask.WaitForAll from the main thread there is potential for deadlock as they will then wait for each other. Although it is safe to use Synchronize inside a Task if you only use WaitForAll from inside Task.Run, as demonstrated in the example TaskChaining, it is often better to use TThread.Queue, which doesn’t halt the thread it’s called from and is therefore generally safer.

CodeRage 9 – 28, 29 en 30 oktober 2014

Nog maar een week en dan begint CodeRage 9!

In dit online event vele bekende sprekers met enkele erg interessante sessies van Ray Konopka (Generics, RTTI), Allen Bauer (Parallel Library), Jim McKeeth (Brain Computer Interface, Voice Control) en vele anderen zoals Marco Cantu, Cary Jensen en Robert Love.

Zelf heb ik ook een korte sessie, waarin ik de nieuwe Parallel Library introduceer en gebruik om applicaties te maken die altijd responsive zijn en de gebruiker nooit blokkeren. Weg met de zandloper!
