We, as developers, have a problem. CPUs will continue to have more cores, and each core is not going to be any faster. The only way to write faster applications is to write multithreaded code, which has two challenges: 1) Multithreaded code is complex to write and think about. 2)Multithreaded code is difficult to test. From what I’ve seen, people are pursuing 4 approaches.
There is suddenly a lot of interest in functional languages recently. The two advantages are writing a DSL (Domain Specific Language) and writing concurrent code. The languages that seem to come up are Clojure (JVM), F# (based on OCaml, Haskell, and ML) (.Net CLR), and Erlang (JVM).
Guess what, a code generator is built-in to Visual Studio 2008.
