10 Years, 10 Lessons: A View from the Multiprocessing Trenches

QNX Software Systems is offering a webinar titled, “10 Years, 10 Lessons: A View from the Multiprocessing Trenches.” The one-hour webcast will take place on Tuesday, June 17, 2008, 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. The online seminar may be of interest to embedded software development managers, architects, and developers who are considering or who are using a multi-core processor for an upcoming project.


Do you know what you want to achieve with multi-core processing? Are you making the most out of the processor cores in your embedded designs? Whether you have migrated to a multi-core or are still investigating strategies, tune in to this session to hear Kerry Johnson and Robert Craig explore multi-core technology based on their 35 years of combined experience in the industry.

In this web seminar, Kerry Johnson shares the insights gained from QNX Software System’s 10 years of experience in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) for embedded systems. Kerry argues that adopting a multi-core processor does not have to be an arduous task. The programming approaches are, in fact, well established and within the ability of most embedded software developers today. The real key is to know what you want to accomplish, where to start, and to follow proven, experience-based practices that prevent the “gotchas” and ensure maximum scalability. Join Kerry as he shares 10 lessons learned that will help ensure the success of your next multi-core project.

Robert Craig will then take you through the new QNX developer portal, where there is a description of the key functions used to handle SMP system bring up and inter-processor co-operation, development tools, forums and more to enable migration to multi-core processing.
