Sharing My Source

April 21, 2009

Hi all, As some of you may know I have a huge collection of applications and code samples. I don't have a degree so all my studies were by designing and writing tools and projects. It was clear to me for some while that I should publish this code. I even tried to do this once before but it is not so simple. The code looks bad when it is viewed as a simple text file over the web. Coloring is problematic because you need to deal with it over and over again whenever you have a bug fixed.

This is not the case with parallel computing. The first thing that comes to mind is that most people either do Procedural C programming...

Video: Introduction to Multicore Programming

The lecture is featured by Pacific Software and myself. The lecture is limited to large groups of people. At the first opportunity I had to bring a camera with me I got the session on video. This was not so easy since most large...
