Interesting Read: Parallel Programming Made Easy?
By Vtatkar-Oracle on Sep 08, 2008
Michael Wolfe, Senior Compiler engineer/architects at The Portland Group (PGI Compilers) recently wrote an article featured in HPCWire questioning how Easy? one could claim to make Parallel programming.
Some interesting thoughts and views from one of the leading compiler architects from a compiler that has focussed on high performance computing for decades(?) now.
Whether you agree or not is your own personal view of how this important style of programming should be shaped, but he does represent a very important part of the discussion underway today.
Definitely worth a read!
