Are you a developer and have you always wished to be able to implement code in parallel and try it on a cluster of processors? Well, now you can do it, cheaply and easily at your home. Thanks to the low cost of the Raspberry Pi boards, now you can realize a small cluster on which to practice and become familiar with parallel programming.
In this article, you’ll see how easy it is to make a small cluster consisting of two Raspberry Pi boars. As a programming language you will use Python and as for programming in parallel, you will see how easy you can be implemented parallel code thanks to the MPI library. A series of examples will then introduce you to the basic concepts of the parallel programming that will be useful for you to develop any project.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
