Not from me though, from Sun. The HPC Watercooler has a post pointing a podcast from the Innovating@Sun guys on Fortress. I don’t usually reblog, but it’s a short, excellent post.
Fortress 1.0, Sun’s new programming language for high-performance computing, is all about opening up scientific domains for writing code – domains that have previously been inaccessible to the average programmer. Dr. Eric Allen, principal investigator in the Programming Language Research Group at Sun Labs, joins Hal Stern on this latest edition of Innovating@Sun to elucidate the features and benefits of Fortress.
I listen to this podcast series, and Hal really does a good job. Check it out here.
