The future of programming and the challenge of Multi-Core
By David Askirk on Nov 27, 2008
Thorbiörn from Sun Sweden was at DTU today to talk about programming with a parallel aspect. There was around 60 people present.
He talked about different kinds of CPUs and how they did concurrency, and parallelism.
To see the the diffrence, see here: http://blogs.sun.com/yuanlin/entry/concurrency_vs_parallelism_concurrent_programming
He talked about the language Fortress http://projectfortress.sun.com/Projects/Community
which have some ability to do parallel programming easy, using symbols, known from math.
