Why Create a New Programming Language with Chapel?

Brad Chamberlain

“Scalable parallel programmers (and desktop parallel programmers, for that matter) would benefit greatly from a productive new language supporting better syntax, features and optimizations than today’s parallel notations offer. HPC has a rich set of lower-level technologies upon which to build and numerous failed parallel languages from which to learn.”

“If you have something that’s not optimal on a single laptop, that’s no big deal, but if you’re on a large national resource [an HPC system], first you’re preventing other researchers from using the machines, and second, you’re wasting taxpayer money,” Biros said. “Efficient computing is about maximizing science per dollar.”
