GPars is a Groovy concurrency library that brings key concurrency constructs from other languages into Groovy. GPars provides concepts like actors, dataflow concurrency, fork/join for divide and conquer, and "safes" to manage mutable state.

This talk will introduce Plumbling, a set of tools to support artists and makers in the programming of low-cost, open-hardware platforms like the Arduino. Plumbing is a library of parallel components written in occam-pi, a small language with a long history.

Computers are getting wider, not faster. If you want your code to run faster, it has to have some parallelism. This is hard, and threads probably aren't the answer. There is a lot of new concurrency technology on the scene. This talk surveys the 2010 state of the art in tools to empower developers to write concurrent code, and makes some predictions.

This hands on tutorial will give you an introduction to the Erlang programming language. You will learn the basics of how to read, write and structure Erlang programs. We start with an insight into the theory and concepts behind sequential and concurrent Erlang, allowing you to get acquainted with the Erlang syntax and semantics.

We have many concurrency/multiprocessing capabilities at our finger tips, but none of them are a model for multiprocessing, they are only tools on which you would build an implementation of such a model. So what are the models we can choose from? How would they be implemented in Python?
