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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
