Exploring Parallelism with Raspberry Pi
The free performance boost delivered annually by Moore’s Law will soon end. Future improvements in computer performance are likely to come from new hardware and software architectures, with parallelism playing a key role. This presentation will explore parallelism. Code examples will be given in C, Ruby, and Python, running on the 18-core Parallella and the quad-core Raspberry Pi 3.
