Brief course description
Parallel computing – cheap!
As computer processors approach their limits in both size and speed, it has become apparent that further advances in computational power will require parallel programming, with many processors networked together and attacking large problems in chunks.
Although supercomputers are far outside of the price range of the normal hobbyist, cheaper minicomputers like the Raspberry Pi can be networked together in the same way to allow hobbyists and experimenters to learn about this powerful form of programming.

Wolf Donat bio
Hi, I’m Wolf. I’m a computer engineer who specializes in robotics, computer vision, and embedded systems. I am a huge fan of the Raspberry Pi minicomputer because of the versatility and power that it packs into an extremely inexpensive package, making it accessible to nearly everybody who wants to learn. I’ve worked with it as both a professional and a hobbyist, and I really enjoy teaching others to use it.
