Today I would like to come with a question to you.
As you probably noticed, in several last posts, I was uncovering multi-threading programming issues. This subject has really caught me and applying it in Open CASCADE-based software reveals huge potential. Talking to my readers, on this blog and outside, I conclude that the issue of parallel programming and performance (regardless of Open CASCADE) is important for many developers and their employers. So, I thought to come out to you with the following idea.
What would be your thoughts on organizing some sort of technical seminar/training on parallel development ? This could be combined with training/consulting on Open CASCADE if there is a need. Regarding the former part (multi-threading) I would work with my colleagues at Intel to get support. Intel is very serious and working hard to promote this knowledge among mainstream software developers, and likely this idea will be supported if there is sufficient audience. Regarding the latter (Open CASCADE) I could check with Open CASCADE team if this will be of interest of them.
The challenge is how to find a place in the world for us to meet. Obviously, it will depend on locations of those who will respond.
So could you please think of this idea and let me know if you might be interested in such an arrangement. Certainly there will be some expenses involved (traveling and lodging) but all together we'll try to figure out how to minimize them.
Sounds too crazy? Post your comments with any ideas here or just send me an email at email@example.com.
Thanks a lot in advance ! Let's make it happen !!!
