Wall St. Wants Your Parallel Programming Skills

Lucas Mearian over at Computerworld writes that parallel programming skills are in high demand on Wall Street.

In high-performance computing, there is a major sea change that’s been happening… and it’s getting more dramatic,” said Jeffrey Birnbaum, chief technology architect at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. “With the sea change that’s coming — parallel computing, multicore processers — the skill of the programmer matters more.”

Birnbaum made the comments during his presentation at the High Performance Computing for Financial Markets convention this week. I heard it was a great show, and I found a gallery of photos from the event that indicate it was a packed house.
