Chapel is a relatively new high-level programming language for shared- and distributed-memory machines. It combines the ease-of-use of Python and the speed of C++ and is the perfect language to learn the basics of parallel programming, whether you are trying to accelerate your computation on a multi-core laptop or on an HPC cluster. In this one-hour hands-on introduction I will go over several of Chapel's high-level abstractions.


All attendees will need to bring their laptops with a remote ssh client installed (on Windows I recommend the free edition of; on Mac and Linux no need to install anything). No need to install Chapel -- we'll play with it on a cluster, and I will provide guest accounts.
