Perception and Action: An Introduction to Clojure's Time Model

Posted by Stuart Halloway  on  Apr 15, 2011 6

Stuart Halloway discusses how we use a total control time model, proposing a different one that represents the world more accurately helping to solve some of the concurrency and parallelism problems.

Actor Thinking

Posted by Dale Schumacher  on  Apr 14, 2011 2

Dale Schumacher explains the actor concept and how it helps us build a computational model resembling the reality around us more accurately than the object-oriented model.

Parallel Programming Patterns: Data Parallelism

Posted by Ralph Johnson  on  Apr 01, 2011 3

Ralph Johnson presents several data parallelism patterns, including related Java, C# and C++ libraries from Intel and Microsoft, comparing it with other forms of parallelism such as actor programming.

How to Think about Parallel Programming: Not!

Posted by Guy Steele  on  Jan 14, 2011 2

Guy L. Steele Jr. believes that programmers should not think about parallelism, but languages should provide ways to transparently run tasks in parallel by supporting independence-based constructs.

Posted by Guy Steele, Douglas Crockford, Josh Bloch, Alex Payne, Bruce Tate, and Ted Neward  on  Nov 24, 2010 8

Guy Steele, Douglas Crockford, Josh Bloch, Alex Payne, Bruce Tate, and Ted Neward (moderator) hold a discussion on the future of programming taking questions from the audience.

Functional Approaches To Parallelism and Concurrency

Posted by Don Syme  on  Oct 20, 2010

Don Syme on functional languages features, showing why and when they are useful for parallel programming: simplicity, composability, immutability, lightweight reaction, translations, data parallelism.

Death by Accidental Complexity

Posted by Ulf Wiger  on  Jul 29, 2010 1

Ulf Wiger shows how concurrency can lead to accidental complexity if it is badly implemented in code, becoming a project’s point of failure. Wiger also advises on how concurrency should be addressed.

Multicore Programming in Haskell

Posted by Simon Marlow  on  Jul 14, 2010 5

Simon Marlow explains through code samples what Haskell has to offer for concurrent programming through concurrent data structures and thread-based concurrency, and Haskell’s tools for parallelism.

A Pattern Language for Parallel Programming

Posted by Ralph Johnson  on  May 07, 2010

Ralph Johnson on a pattern language for parallel programming based on the following patterns: Structural, Computational, Parallel Algorithm Strategy, Implementation Strategy, and Concurrent Execution.

Are We There Yet?

Posted by Rich Hickey  on  Nov 12, 2009 6

Rich Hickey advocates the reexamination of basic principles used today like state, identity, value, time, to create new constructs to deal with the massive parallelism and concurrency of the future.

Multicore Programming in Erlang

Posted by Ulf Wiger  on  Jul 16, 2009

Ulf Wiger shows typical Erlang programs, patterns that scale well on multicore and patterns that don't, profiling and debugging parallel applications and ensuring correct behaviour with QuickCheck.
