3/24 Parallel Programming Community Meetup in Santa Clara

This thread has been created for buzz about the meetup. During the event I will be making comments and inviting attendees to do the same here.

We're looking forward to this meetup - we've got two excellent Technical Speakers, Intel Engineers Noah Clemons and Rich Hubbard who will discuss the 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor Family (Code Name Sandy Bridge), helping those who attend to understand what this new microarchitecture means to the Parallel Programmer.

We will bedemonstrating the Intel Concurrency Checker, Parallel Studio XE Toolsand we will register new community members and show them how they can become authors on ISN.

Hope to see you there!

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

A number of us from the Academic Community will be resent at this event as well. We are looking forward to a great meet up and a chance to foster discussion between teaching and coding professionals. Personally, I can't wait!

Unluckily, I won't be able to attend the Meetup. I had to
change my plans but I'll be blogging soon at ISN about interesting adventures around
the world with the newest dual-core Intel Atom microprocessors. I'm sure we will have another
Meetup in the near future and I'll be there. The interest in parallel
programming with the newest Intel
microarchitectures is growing really fast.

In fact, the 2nd Generation
Intel Core Processor Family (Code Name Sandy Bridge) brings exciting
opportunities for those willing to take full advantage of GPGPU. If you detect
a Sandy Bridge CPU, it means that you have a CPU and a GPU, with a shared cache
and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. I wrote a post about the improved Intel Turbo Boost Technology Monitor a few days ago.

It would be great to get
detailed information about the new Intel tools to take full advantage of Sandy
Bridge. I'm sure the Meetup will provide valuable information. In fact, I was
going to travel 16 hours to be there. However, I had to talk about specific
optimization techniques for the newest dual-core Intel Atom microprocessors and
I was unable to make last minute changes to the schedule to attend the Meetup.
It is Intel's fault. Intel is launching too many exciting products and I must
help other in taking full advantage of the exciting capabilities of all these
new products.

I missed the chance to be in this
Meetup but I'll stay tuned with the new community members and authors on ISN.
I'm sure the attendants will receive valuable information and they will be able
to share experiences in the near future.

Don't forget to share your
experiences in the Meetup.

Great MeetUp event on Thursday, March 24th. I had some really good conversations with many of the attendees. The presentation on Sandy Bridge had a good audience. Since we had a good turnout. I think we'll do ore ofthese in the future.
