For certain problems, parallel computing blows away the serial style we learned in school. Parallella is an 18-core, credit card sized supercomputer that developers can use to start learning parallel computing right now. The hardware is open source, circuit diagrams are on GitHub, and it runs Linux. This presentation will show how developers can start learning Parallella and parallel computing today. Code examples will be given in C and in Ruby.
