Two Job Openings At The Best Place To Work In Germany!

Now this is just typical. Last week I have finally gotten rid of my job board, because nobody was using it. Just a week later, my advisor asks me, where it went, because she would like to announce two job openings. Oh well. Murphy is everywhere. I won’t bring back the job board, because as […]

Parallel Programming News for Week 47/2007

Contrary to what the update-frequency of this blog suggests, I am not dead. Not even near that, I am very healthy the only problem is that with my new job, new house in the works and family I am left with very little time for blogging. Life is about setting the right priorities and at […]

A beautiful summary of NVIDIA’s CUDA by Bryan O’Sullivan

Bryan O’Sullivan has a beautiful summary of the present state of NVIDIA’s CUDA. He explains the programming model, along with the many different levels of memory and their restrictions (there are many 🙂 ). I had been quite optimistic in my last post about CUDA (just from taking a quick glance at their source code), […]

Nvidia releases Cuda – and reinvents Stream Processing?

So it looks like CUDA was released. I will let their marketing department have their two minutes of fame: NVIDIA® CUDAâ„¢ technology is a fundamentally new computing architecture that enables the GPU to solve complex computational problems in consumer, business, and technical applications. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) technology gives computationally intensive applications access to […]

A Conversation with Hennessy and Patterson

The ACM Queue has an interview with two of my absolute computer architecture heroes – John Hennessy and David Patterson. I have dug my way through their famous book Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach right before my diploma thesis and the only reason I did not buy it back then was, because I feared they […]
