Learning Programming Fundamentals

11 February, 2015 - 12:22

Students learning to program that are currently taking courses in Modular/Structured programming and/or Object Oriented programming might want to review the source code files for the demonstration programs listed above. These programs do not do parallel programming, but the student could modify or improve them to better explain parallel programming concepts.

Another appropriate activity is to "Google" some of the key words listed above. With your fundamental understanding of programming, you will understand more of the materials than those with no programming experience. You should get a sense that parallel programming is becoming a more important part of a computer professional's work and career.

Review the "Top 500 Super Computers" here.

Look at the source code listings provided in the next section, but remember, you cannot compile or run these on your normal computer.
