Wouldn’t it be nice if a stored procedure could run certain statements in parallel, if we could easily scale out SQL Server applications,… When you have code that can run asynchronously, all these things become possible, if you implement them with the Service Broker: Service Broker is an service oriented framework build into SQL Server 2005, and has been extended in SQL Server 2008. If you want to see how to implement code in this framework, and what Service Broker can do for you, come to my talk at the next Belgian SQL user group meeting on February 11.

A couple of weeks ago, I did a webcast on Parallel Computing available on channel9 at http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/adebruyn/MSDN-Live-Meeting-Visual-Studio-2010-and-NET-4-Update
The presentation can be downloaded at : ParallelComputing.pdf
In addition, you can also download my demos :
