As a follow-up to the well-received talks at BayPIGgies (June + July
2010), MBA Sciences is pleased to announce a complimentary class on
SPM.Python scheduled for Monday, August 9 (7PM - 9PM) at the Mountain
View Community Center.

This class will provide a concise, yet practical, hands-on introduction
to techniques for leveraging up to 512 cores when exploiting parallelism
using SPM.Python.

We'll begin by introducing the notion of parallel management patterns, 
an approach to decomposing problems when exploiting parallelism, but in
a technology and language agnostic manner.

Armed with these patterns, we shall review key features of SPM.Python:
    * pshell suite of parallel shell managers that permit the running of
      any application in parallel
    * pinterp suite of parallel python interpreters that permit the
      running of any (serial) python module in parallel

At the end of this informal 2-hour hands-on class, attendees will be
able to walk away with actionable tips on the what/why/how to exploit
various forms of parallelism using SPM.Python.

The complete itinerary of the class may be found at www.mbasciences.com.
No parallel programming experience is required. Bring a laptop with a
supported Linux distribution to try the exercises, or simply follow
Space is limited. Please RSVP by sending an email to

Looking forward to seeing one and all!
