HPC Gandhi


It looks like Shawn Gandhi’s HPC/Cloud Workgroup is really going well.  He had a big crowd at his BYOL event a few weeks ago:

Shawn worked with Nikita Ivanov, CEO for Gridgain Systems, on a live coding workshop where participants bring their own laptops.  They used Scala and Gridgain’s own DSL called Scalar, to create a simple cloud enabled map-reduce application which ran on on a grid setup using everyone’s laptop.  They also created a little ping-pong algorithm using Scala and the actor framework.
