As If Keeping Up Wasn't Hard Enough: Enter Parallelism

Posted by davidvc on February 20, 2007 at 11:53 AM PST

I should have seen it coming. The company I work for is putting a lot of energy behind multi-core CPUs. Scaling on multi-core chips is becoming more and more important. But do I think about building a program so that it is highly parallel? No. I have enough to think about.

But there are signs that I need to start thinking about this. And if you aren't, you probably should.

Sigh. I'm just starting to get my hands around AJAX and REST and Ruby on Rails and meta-tagging and the Semantic Web, and, and... Now this. Can I go home now?
