Go Parallel Or Get Left Behind

January 27, 2009

It's not news these days that multicore and parallelization are a very big deal indeed. Which is why we've been covering these topics like the dew covers Dixie. For starters, there are articles like ...


Then there's everything written by Herb Sutter in his "Effective Concurrency" column. Stuff like:

and, of course, his landmark wake-up call to software developers:

Not to mention Rob Farber's great ongoing series on:

But like I said, this isn't today's news. No, the news today is that we've launched a website called Dr. Dobb's Go-Parallel that's specifically devoted to parallelism and multi-core and our hope is that it becomes  your one-stop-shopping locale for all things parallel. That includes a huge (and growing) library of articles, videos, and the like about parallel programming, along with blogs by the likes of Stephen Blair-chappell, Markus Levy, Cameron and Tracey Hughes, and Jack Woehr, among others.

And it should come as no surprise that we're always looking for more of the same -- articles that show the techniques you've come up with to develop parallel applications for multi-core systems. If something comes to mind, drop me a note at [email protected]

In the meantime, go parallel -- or get left behind.
