  • Adding Parallel and Distributed Computing to the Computer Science Curriculum using Raspberry Pis

    Tuesday, July 25, 2017

    11:00 AM-12:00 PM

    University Crossings, Room 149 3175 John F Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19104

    Speaker: Prof. Richard A. Brown, Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, St. Olaf College

    We are all immersed in a world of parallel and distributed computing (PDC), ranging from personal multi-core cell phones to the expansive remote cloud computing-powered services they interact with.

    How can we give CS students everywhere the essential PDC concepts they need to understand the day-to-day computing they use?  We describe a module-based approach for incrementally adding PDC to existing courses in appropriate contexts, and consider the range of computational platforms available for providing hands-on experience with PDC technologies.

    We will also offer audience members an opportunity briefly to try an inexpensive PDC teaching platform based on a Raspberry Pi single-board computer. The physical presence of a Pi piques student interest, and helps to make some PDC concepts concrete.

    Audience members are invited to bring a laptop for the demo.
