Multicore Expo took place last week. If you are not famliar with the event, go and visit http://www.multicore-expo.com/. It is a great way to get some input on what is going on with multicore trends and technologies.
This last event had a slew of presentation that covered multicore and provided some nice and interesting views. There is clearly still a long way to go, but from year to year we can clearly see that thoughts and direction are forming and becoming clearer.
On the site of the Expo you can find the presentations from last year. I am sure we will soon have access to the 2009 presentations. Feel free to drop a line, I am sure there will be a lot of good discussion on this topic this year.
