This article focuses on aspects of porting Fortran codes to the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. Most of the documentation for the coprocessor is C/C++ centric. Here the focus is on Fortran, which is still the dominant language for scientific programming and for which a large amount of legacy code exits.
Coding the Future, Intels Vision
James Reinders, Director and Parallel Programming Evangelist, talks about Intel’s vision of consistent, standards-based software development tools. He also discusses his new book that gives an introduction to programming for parallelism on Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.
