Future (circa 2010) Parallel Programming Models

Joe Duffy regularly posts amazing material which is well ahead of our time, such as his current blog post series about Midori.

I’d like to call out this particular assertion made by him way back in 2010:

[D]evelopers must move towards single-threaded programming models connected through message passing, optionally with provably race-free fine-grained parallelism inside of those single-threaded worlds.

Add “async/await everywhere” and you can sign me up!
