TeenTech Conference Workshop

On Sunday, November 19th I had the opportunity to be an invited speaker at the TeenTech NY conference! Hosted at the Microsoft Center in New York City, the goal of TeenTech NY is to create an interactive tech community that connects students to professionals in Industr and Academia to expose them to all the possibilities in tech. My workshop, “Parallel Computing on the Raspberry Pi”, was designed to introduce high school and early college students to parallel computing usin ga Raspberry Pi single board computer. During the workshop, I discussed the basics of multi-threaded applications, and walked students through a simple example of concurrency. This workshop was based on earlier successful workshops that I and the CSinParallel team put on at SIGCSE, Tapia, and the SIAM CSE conference.
