Last week Robert Hess interviewed me for the Knowledge Chamber on Channel 9. We talked about why understanding the fundamentals of patterns for writing parallel software is going to become more and more important over the next few years. Why simply recompiling your code for the latest processor from Intel or AMD isn’t going to cut it and what we’re doing at the PDC 2009 Patterns of Parallel Programming workshop to help developers make sense of it all.
Daft Trivia: I seem to remember Robert Hess mentioned FutureNet—the web site I was working on back in the late 90’s—as part of Microsoft’s IE 4.0 launch in 1997. Since then we’ve both decided to dress slightly more conservatively!
