Minesh will introduce us to a "scalable vocabulary" to better express parallelism from concept to implementation. After an introduction to parallelism and to Parallel Management Patterns (PMP), he will guide us through the steps of taking an idea, using PMP, getting a working skeleton, building a prototype, and deploying. The example will use SMP.Python, OpenMPI, and CUDA.

Minesh B. Amin is the founder and CEO of MBA Sciences, which has introduced the SPM.Python product that enables users to easily create parallel applications using an integrated Python API and framework. Minesh received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota and moved to Silicon Valley, developing software solutions at ViewLogic and Synopsys prior to starting MBA Sciences in 2006.

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
