CS 239 Parallel Programming Languages Spring 2011
- Time and place: Tue+Thu 4-6pm, 5272 Boelter Hall.
- Professor: Jens Palsberg
Motivation for the course: learn new programming abstractions
that will be useful for programming clusters of multi-core computers, GPUs, and supercomputers.
I hope the course can help kick-start new research projects.
Homework 1 is due Thu May 12, 2011, 2pm.
Homework 2 is due Thu Jun 9, 2011, 2pm.
