CSE 260 - Parallel Computing

Introduction I took CSE 260 Parallel Computing by Bryan Chin in my first quarter at UCSD. Advertised as a practical course alternative to the CSE 240B Parallel Computer Architecture, I was interested in this as a good complement to CSE 240A Computer Architecture, and it did not disappoint! The course was fully hands on with three projects and the course based around the practical implementation of parallel computing. Contents ranged from vector processing on CPUs, graphics acceleration for arithmetic and using multiple independent systems using message passing for processing large amounts of data, while including theoretical concepts behind these like Amdahl’s law for speedup and Little’s Law for pipelines....

We started from the basics of virtualization, progressed through different types and solutions, dove into containers, Kubernetes and serverless, and ended on a high note with cloud computing and its future. If you have read my previous posts, I have been using virtualization solutions for quite some time, for both work and play....
