J 7, beta installation, GTK, parallel programming examples, important algorithms, incremental changes: a poor approach to parallelism

Location:: downstairs at the Heartland Brewery in the Empire State Building at 34th and 5th

Agenda for 20100810

1. Beginner's regatta: looking at J 7 - see "J7InstallationFeaturesComments.pdf".


2. Show-and-tell: Overview of APL2010 paper - see
"ParallelProgrammingTowardAPracticum-NoName.pdf"


3. Advanced topics: most important algorithms - should we have them all available
in J?  See "The Most Important Algorithms.pdf" and "SIAMTopTenAlgorithms_topten.pdf".


4. Learning, teaching and promoting J, et al.: poor examples of parallelism -
can we do better?  See "BadExampleAlgosDemoPllsm.pdf", "Fibonacci Example-
PllSlower.pdf", and "FibonacciNumsInJ-annotated.pdf".  Also, does it make
sense to incrementally adapt existing, deeply serial languages to a parallel
mode?  See "LimitationsOfIncrementalAdaptionToParallelism.pdf".
