Eiffel Software announces an international series of one-day seminars led by award-winning technology guru Dr. Bertrand Meyer. Concurrent and Parallel Programming is the next big shift in software development since the adoption of Object Technology nearly a quarter of a century ago. Mastering Concurrent and Parallel Programming is a critical skill for any software developer who wants to build the new killer apps.
According to Dr. Meyer the “end of Moores law as we knew it” means that advances in performance require the use of multi-core architectures; the increasing importance of networking and the ever larger datasets available today add to the urgency of adopting concurrency. No area of IT, from enterprise applications to embedded systems, cloud computing, big data and Web services, can ignore it. It is time for the development community to make the shift.
The press agrees. With Go Parallel, Dr. Dobbs, one of the leading publications for developers, dedicates a full permanent section of its website to the topic. Neil McAllister, technology writer for InfoWorld, recently cited parallel computing as one of his 5 hot specialties for ambitious software developers in 2012. Herb Sutter, an influential authority on software development and C++, wrote: The free lunch is over. The biggest sea change in software development since the O-O revolution is knocking at the door, and its name is Concurrency.
Dr. Meyers information packed one-day session presents the state of the art in concurrency and parallel programming, including the most recent advances in the field. Topics include:
