Parallel Evolution, not Revolution

“These days, if you study programming and never do a parallel program during your time in college, you need to demand you money back. Seriously.”

Good comment on this article at Dr. Dobbs

Other good paragraph

“Multicore processors are a localized parallel computing system. The vision of connecting the whole world via the Internet gave rise to “cloud” computing. What about “grid” computing? It lost the contest for which “hyped” word will dominate, and there isn’t enough difference between “grid” and “cloud” for the world to need two names. They are both forms of parallel computing. Every cloud programmer contributes to providing parallel work for hungry cores, whether through their own parallel program or concurrency.”
