Philip stated, '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, agents 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. We currently have a working prototype with basic Visual Studio integration and a few demonstrations of working code.'
Axum is an incubation project that Microsoft is working on to help programmers tackle the issue of parallel programming in the .NET environment.
