The 2nd in our Whitepaper awareness blog posts is around Parallel Programming, authored by Ranjan Sen. Parallel programming is an extension of sequential programming and is becoming the mainstream paradigm in day-to-day information processing. Its aim is to build the fastest programs on parallel computers. The methodologies for developing a parallel program can be put into integrated frameworks. This paper discusses the basic issues in developing parallel programs and the technologies available.
Published in the fall, this paper applies to:
Microsoft .NET Framework
Microsoft Visual Basic
Microsoft Visual Studio
Ranjan Sen joined Microsoft 8 years ago and is currently a Solutions Architect in the Developer and Platform Evangelism Group. Ranjan has spent considerable time evangelizing, teaching and doing research in parallel processing. He is thoroughly excited to be part of parallel processing technologies from Microsoft with such great things happening at this time. Ranjan has deep involvement in education and community growth, and works on innovative projects in rural information technology when he’s not otherwise creating parallel processes in his kitchen. Ranjan loves to cook.
