The future of programming and the challenge of Multi-Core

Thorbiƶrn 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.

Core Wars and other Java Gaming

I have discovered Core Wars (http://www.corewars.org/index.html) It is a great game where you need to write your own warrior to fight for cores in a VM.

I have started a project of write my own Mars because the one in java is written in old-java and because I wanted to try to make a simple VM.

I will post more about this when I got more to post about :-)

Another thing that I have found on the interwebs is http://projecteuler.net/index.php a great page with small problems which is fun to try to solve in breaks, and for getting your head of things.
