So Glad IDF Doesn't Start 'Til Tuesday

As I sit at home on the Saturday night before the Intel Developer Forum 2011 I am still checking off lists - what to pack (a major list), making sure I've got complete notes for the 11 Videos that Dr. Clay Breshears and I will make for the community (of course our fine videographer Jerry Makare will do the actual filming and editing). We will be interviewing the makers of several new software applications that have come about because of Intel Architechture. Names to look for include Pervasive's Data Rush and Critical Blue's Prism. (I have always thought that the namers of software are an uber-creative bunch.)

We will be talking with many ISN Parallel Programming Black Belt Developers - those are the cream of the community crop as it were - real coding gurus who not only know their stuff - they routinely reach out and help developers who don't have quite the experience that they do. This year there are ten Parallel Programming Community Black Belts attending - keep checking back for these videos that will be appearing on the Community in the days following IDF.

The charter members of this elite group are Igor Levicki and Jim Dempsey, from Serbia and good old Oshkosh Wisconsin respectively. Jim and Igor, don't forget your sunglasses (and a jacket). Other countries represented in our BB group include Argentina and Belgium. We are having our annual Black Belt meetup on Wednesday with a nice dinner planned. Intel Parallelism Guru James Reinders will be speaking at the dinner - always good to hear from James about what is on the horizon for parallelism, at Intel and around our industry.

This year's Forum promises to be another whirlwind of activity - Keynotes from Paul Otellini and Justin Ratner will be high points for sure.

Clay and I will also be supporting Intel Technical Consulting Engineer (and newest Community Black Belt Developers) Noah Clemons as he presents a truly unique hands-on lab. Called Intel® Faces of Parallelism Lab: Parallel Models for Multi/Many Core" (SFTL004) On Wednesday, Sept. 14 join anytime from 1-5pm to see how the latest Intel® silicon features are unlocked via Intel’s optimized Software Tools. You might win a Sony Internet TV! Read Clay's latest blog for more details.

Well, lots to do before leaving Monday afternoon - thank goodness it's only a 30-minute drive for me and I'll have time to catch my breath before my first appointment with the whirlwind on Tuesday morning. If you're there come and find me along with other ISN folks. We want to meet you and show you what is new.
