Once you Scoop, you never fork



Abstract

The future is parallel. In this rapidly evolving parallel world, the scoop is that parallel programming can be much simpler, transparent and elegant. But the mindset and culture need to change as current practices are way too complex with convoluted, tedious and subtle details such as resource management, synchronisation, deadlocks, race conditions, invalid states and efficient communication, just to name a few. Introducing SCOOP, a new distributed task module allowing concurrent parallel programming on various environments, from heterogeneous grids to supercomputers. After an explanation of why you need concurrency libraries and a brief summary of the choices currently available, we dive into our vision of this world and how to propose a new way of handling this paradigm based on simplicity, beauty and the Future, see PEP-3148:
