Microsoft Axum – Parallel Programming Language


Axum is an incubation project from Microsoft’s Parallel Computing Platform that aims to validate a safe and productive parallel programming model for the .NET framework.

It’s a language that builds upon the architecture of the web and the principles of isolation, actors, and message-passing to increase application safety, responsiveness, scalability and developer productivity. Other advanced concepts we are exploring are data flow networks, asynchronous methods, and type annotations for taming side-effects. 

You can get Microsoft Axum from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=CFE70D5D-37AA-4C4C-8EEB-D4576C41BAA2&displaylang=en
