Live Tuesday 21 JUL at 8am (PT). Guest: Prof. Guy Blelloch, Carnegie-Mellon University.

Aaron and Michael will be talking with Dr. Blelloch about his recient essay "Is Parallel Programming Hard?". Dr. Blelloch proposes that with the right level of abstraction, Parallel Programming is not and in fact can be as easy as sequential programming. He does note that, however, that "at the right level of abstraction" should be considered with care.
