I am attending the annual (Intel) PRC Multi-Core Forum held at Xiamen. Among the overwhelming information I received from the experience and BKM sharing between faculty, one interesting point does catch my attention - As the computing power which used to belong to super computers now becomes normally available on our desktop and laptop system, should the parallel programming techniques take off their old academic clothes and dress in some new fashion that is friendlier to common developers?
I am occasionally inspired by stories of how corporations or business units reinvent themselves. It's something I can learn from as I try to be a better leader and manager.
The challenge - how do you reach out to software developers and help them be more effective using our hardware?
这里我再补充一点是有关基于COM组件实现的应用系统进行多线程化时候的实现方式。当前COM已经没有继续技术上的发展了，但是遗留下来的相关系统可能采用了基于COM的实现方案。那么这一情况就是我们在实现多线程优化的时候需要考虑的实现环境，因为它有别于基本的Windows Thread API，或是Linux PThread API。COM的多线程支持采用了微软自定义的套间（Apartment）的多线程模型，对多线程之间私有数据隔离采用了单套间的实现方式，对于多线程之间的数据共享采用了多套间的实现方式。采用套间方式实现COM组件多线程调用之间的交互，避免使用更高级别的进程之间的数据共享，会给基于COM组件的应用带来多线程优化方面的性能提升。
Two hours before his curiously awaited keynote speech at GCDC'08 we had the opportunity to interview David Perry, CCO of Acclaim Games. Of course we wanted to know beforehand what he will talk about at his presentation and so he gave us the chance to look a little bit behind the curtain.
I’m Gunjan Rawal. I am a part of the Intel Software Network team and this is my first post. The first post is typically the hardest to write, I spent a lot of time wondering what I am going to say in the first post – Formula 1?… The best Thai food I ever had? (Nope!!). And then I realized I just want to introduce myself and say hi. So here goes…I am an engineer by background and over the past 10 years, I have been involved in a whole range of roles from program management to advertising.
