Introduction to Parallel Programming

InstructionalDesign Document

Version: October 17, 2008 v.2

1. Module Name: Introduction to Parallel Programming

2. Writers: CAT Staff

3. Targeted availability: [Intel internal date] (Coincident with Faculty Training 2.1)

4. Brief Module Description

Would you be interested in adding a lecture on Parallel Architecture for Games, described in this design document? Why or why not?

1. Course Name: Parallel Architecture for Games
2. Writers: Mike Pearce, et al.
3. Targeted availability: Q4 2008
4. Brief Course Description


This module examines a game architecture developed by Intel, designed to take advantage of all CPU cores available within a system. This courseware explores how to support and overcome the challenges of parallelism in the context of a modern game architecture. It also provides a parallel framework on which to build threaded scalable games.

Is more training required on Performance Counters???

Just this week I received an email from a faculty member who asked if I would consider adding a module to our instructor lead faculty training course. The idea for the module would be based around performance counters. Speficially, the request read:
"Have you ever considered a module on performance counters?
perfex/PAPI/perfctr and the like? " - See -http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/UserInfo/Resources/Software/Tools/PAPI/

Forums will be read-only 09/24 10PM PST to 09/25 12PM PST

Hello,

From Tuesday, September 24, 10pm PST to Thursday, September 25, 12pm PST, the Intel Software Network Community Forums will be read only in preparation for the new forums interface launch on Thursday, September 25. During this time, users will be able to read the forums, but will not be able to reply or submit new topics. The new forums will have an improved look and many added features. We hope youll like the new ISN Community Forums.

Warm regards,

Would you take the OpenMP 3.0 related training described in this design document? Why or why not?

Thereare some new and exciting features of Openmp 3.0 that are just hitting the big name compilers (gnu, MS, Intel, etc). The biggest new feature in OpenMP is TASKS!

I am looking at restructuring our existing OpenMP to also incorporate how to use the task contructs in OpenMP.

Below is the instructional design document I think targets our objective, audience, etc -

BUT - this is only my idea.

Concurrent Solution Design by Examples Functional Constructs Scenario

This article is one of a series illustrating some basic practices of concurrent or parallel solution design, which are expected to be within the common mastery of software developers in the 21st century.

As a common practice, programmers are suggested to write their codes in a modular way which adds ease to later maintenance and more importantly, reusability. On the other hand, this useful construct is actually a good facility for data parallel applications as well. Lets start the story from a well known searching algorithm, Binary Search.

Concurrent Solution Design by Examples Iterative Constructs Scenario

This article is one of a series illustrating some basic practices of concurrent or parallel solution design, which are expected to be within the common mastery of software developers in the 21st century. Another version of this article with more figures illustration can be found as the attached. Feedbacks and comments are all appreciated.
