Multicore Programming Workshop - Lecture 1

Posted by Ilya Mirman originally on on Wed, Jul 15, 2009

We recently teamed up with MIT's Professional Development Program on a 2-day workshop focused on multicore programming.

The first lecture covered:

  • The multicore programming challenge
  • Shared-memory hardware
  • Leading concurrency platforms (Pthreads, OpenMP, TBB, Cilk++)
  • Race conditions

Here is the video and slides from the first lecture:

Here's the next lecture (#2).
