Topic:  Parallel Programming with Geriatric Languages

Presenter: Joey Bernard


A recent talk covered parallel programming topics and using functional languages to solve problems in a parallel way. This talk is a light-hearted rebuttal, talking about solutions available for those of us who are stuck using geriatric languages like C and FORTRAN.

We'll look at some general parallel topics, then look at coding using OpenMP and MPI.

No experience with parallel programming is required to attend.

Speaker Bio:

Joey Bernard has been a Computational Research Consultant for the past
5 years. As a CRC, he spends his time helping researchers using both third-party software and home-grown code, mostly in C and FORTRAN.
Before that he spent 6 years as a senior software developer at CARIS using Oracle databases, Java and C spread across Windows and Solaris machines.
