Microsoft launched several new Technical Computing (TC) projects on DevLabs. These projects give you a chance to learn about some of the technologies being developed as part of the TC initiative, to gain early access to code, and to provide feedback for several TC-related innovative projects.
The TC initiative has made some important first steps since its inception. Visual Studio 2010 includes built-in support for developing, debugging, and tuning multi-core and manycore apps and has seen impressive adoption within a wide-variety of industries and domains. In Nov. SP1 for HPC Server 2008 R2 was released, which integrates Windows Azure compute cycles, allowing massively parallel apps to easily scale from the cluster to the cloud. And this 's just the beginning. The teams involved in the TC initiative are working hard on impressive new solutions to bring all that modern and future computing has to offer to developers, domain specialists, and IT professionals alike.
Today's new TC projects take the next steps in this journey:
- TPL Dataflow - Enabling parallel and concurrent .NET apps
- Dryad - Supporting data-intensive computing apps
- Sho - Putting the power of data analysis flexible prototyping in your hands
