1. Considerations for choosing the parallel computing strategy that fits your needs - Dori Exterman

Multi-core architecture is the present and future path in which the market is addressing Moor’s law limitations. Multi-core workstations, high-performance computers, GPU’s and the focus on hybrid \ public cloud technologies for offloading and scaling applications is where the industry is heading. Choosing the correct multi-core strategy for your software requirements is essential, making the wrong decision can have high implications on software performance, scalability, memory usage and other factors. In this overview, we’ll inspect various considerations for choosing the correct multi-core strategy for your application’s requirement and investigate the pros and cons of multi-threaded development vs multi-process development while covering aspects such as sharing memory and data, communication and synchronization techniques and scaling performance through hybrid and cloud. We will examine the common development and testing environments to find out how multi-core advantages are used in order to support higher development productivity and shorter release cycles.

An expert software developer and product strategist, Dori Exterman has 20 years of experience in the software development industry. As Chief Technical Officer of IncrediBuild, he directs the company's product strategy and is responsible for product vision, implementation, and technical partnerships. Before joining IncrediBuild, Dori held a variety of technical and product development roles at oftware companies, with a focus on architecture, performance and advanced technologies. He is an expert and frequent speaker on technological advancement in development tools specializing in Embarcadero (formerly Borland) environments, and manages the Israeli development forum for these tools.
