Why is difficult to find parallel programmers?

Filed under: Multicore, Open Source, Parallel Programming — multicoreblog @ 10:18 am

Paul McKenney gives some context in his post “As the price of parallel systems has plummeted, the number of situations where it makes economic sense to use them has increased exponentially. This in turn means that the demand for parallel software has also grown suddenly, outstripping the supply of developers with parallel-programming experience. Voilà, a parallel-software crisis.”

Actually the title of this post is just an excuse to point the reader to Paul’s excellent blog, particularly to his list of posts about how hard is parallel programming.
