MSEPT'12 - Conference on Software Engineering for Multicore Systems

by Michael Stal on  Jan 13, 2012 2

It is hard to leverage the parallelism provided by recent processor architectures. As these CPUs are now available even in the low cost price sector, the main challenge of software engineers is to utilize the processors in their applications or apps. The International Conference on Multicore Software Engineering, Performance, and Tools (MSEPT'12) will focus on possible answers.

What Agile Architecture and Hurricanes have in Common

by Michael Stal on  May 20, 2011 1

In a recent presentation at SATURN 2011 Eric Richardson has drawn some analogies between architects in an agile environment and hurricane meteorologists. For example, both produce various forecasts respectively documents, use many kinds of data sources as inputs, and employ different techniques to acquire data. The question arises is: what can architects learn from meteorologists?
