Due to stagnating clock rates, future increases in processor performance will have to come from parallelism. Inexpensive multicore processors with several cores on a chip have become standard in PCs, laptops, servers, and embedded devices will follow; manycore chips with hundreds of processors on a single chip are predicted. Software engineers are now asked to write parallel applications of all sorts, and need to quickly grasp the relevant aspects of general-purpose parallel programming. This tutorial at ICSE 2010 prepares them for this challenge.
