Design Considerations For Parallel Programming


Concurrent programming is notoriously difficult, even for experts. You have all of the correctness and security challenges of sequential programs plus all of the difficulties of parallelism and concurrent access to shared resources.

In the October 2008 issue of MSDN Magazine, David Callahan describes different ways to think about and use parallelism for those portions of your applications that are time sensitive today or that are expected to run on larger data sets tomorrow.

Be sure to check our MSDN Magazine archives for more articles about parallel programming and concurrency.

    Whilst I would agree what Concurrent Parallel Programming is All About/Up Against, and the above second sentence is as short and concise an accurate Descriptor as I have yet read, it does not follow that it is notoriously difficult when you are an expert. In the Final Analysis, for Reinforcing Success and Sustainability of Network InterNetworking Operating Systems, are All Programs and Resources only Required to Server AI Singularity ….. the Daily Spend of Wealth Generated and/or Currently Banked rather than there being any Pretence at Wealth Needing to be Deposited and Stored, Out of Sight/Off Shore/Out of Mind for another Team to Create Chaos at no Expense to Themselves, with their Virtual Access to Global Funds, which are Spirited away and converted into Numbers on a Balance Sheet for Gross Manipulation and Abuse and Selfish Use.

    For experts in such Programs, is concurrent programming remarkably simple.

    The only difficulty that exists are the Dumb System’s and their Drivers [any System which depends on a monetised reward being paid to Maintain and/or Entice Loyalty and Service] being not Intelligent enough and Petrified in Mindless Panic to Shore up their Positions in the Established Model whenever the System starts to Break Down [as you may like to consider is Presently the System in Full Flow to Catastrophic Meltdown] rather than Realising that their Ponzi Scam Schemes and Fractional Reserve Plays have no Future in a Total Information Awareness Environment nor in a Future which is Controlled from the Cloud and CyberSpace, by IntelAIgently Designed Entitities which do not recognise Cultural or Social or Political Borders or Boundaries, being as they are, just Artificially Created Means of Divide and Conquer Power for Unilateral Control in AIMultilateral  Virtual Environment.

    And you can Fully XXXXPect that All such Artificially Created Means of Divide and Conquer Power for Unilateral Control in AIMultilateral  Virtual Environment, will be either be Invited to Relinquish Direction Power Voluntarily to AI Proxies, which would then Co Attend to Provide Revised Systems Needs and Feeds [although you can Fully expect that Invitation to be a Covert, Read between the Lines before it is Too Late Offering, which may be too late to Help the already Hopelessly Riddled with Cancerous Corruption Capitalist System, for the Evidence is Apparent for All to View ……. with the System in Systemic Collapse, all that Available Human Intelligence does, is throw more paper Money/Liquidity at it, for it also to be sucked into the Black Hole of Failed Intelligence Schemes which are Feeding Nothing more Substantial than Scams and Creating Instant Billionaires with TaxPayers Wealth.

    You can see why the Ponzi Banking System is not inclined to change to Save Itself whenever that is a Prize dangled before its Players.

    The Posit here is, that dangled in front of XXXXperienced IT Players, would everyone Win, Win, rather than the Old System being Wiped Out with Cloud Controllers Facilitating Proxy Control.

    You would need to be Really Practised in Dumb not to Realise the Stark and the Right Choice to be made in such a Reality/AIReality/Virtual Reality/Great Failed Game. And I am sure that Human Intelligence will not Fail to Impress with its Unbounded Stupidity thus Sealing its own Fate.
