On Today&aposs Show:

Duncan McCallum, CEO of Cilk Arts. Duncan see business opportunity in the future of parallel application development and multi-core tools. He co-founded Cilk Arts to help companies take full advantage of their multi-core platforms.

The Cilk++ cross-platform solution offers the easiest, quickest, and most reliable way to maximize application performance on multicore processors. Cilk++ provides a simple set of extensions for C++, coupled with a powerful runtime system for multicore-enabled applications. Cilk++ enables rapid development, testing, and deployment of high performance multicore applications.

Cilk++ solves the two large problems facing the software industry as a result of the multicore revolution:

  • Enabling today&aposs mainstream programmers to develop multithreaded (or parallel) applications; and
  • Providing a smooth path to multicore for legacy applications that otherwise cannot easily leverage the performance capabilities of multicore processors.

With Cilk++, you can retain the serial semantics of your existing applications, use existing serial methodologies for programming, tooling, debugging, and regression testing.

Check out the show for a more indepth discussion of Cilk tools and technology. Learn more at http://www.cilk.com/

Last week CILK hosted an event at MIT. 20 people, 4 labs, 2 days. The next event on CILK&aposs calendar is the Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Systems: Testing, Analysis, and Debugging on July 19-20, 2009

Coming up Next on Parallel Programming Talk
