Parallel programming tends to invoke images of expensive multi-core processors and clusters of blade servers buzzing away on interesting problems. But Matt Jadud, a computer science professor at Allegheny College, believes that even teeny-tiny devices like Arduino boards can benefit from a judicious application of parallel programming. At next month's OSCON conference he'll talk about how parallel programming can help artists and makers. In the following Q&A, he reveals a handful of interesting parallel applications and looks at the broader educational impact of low-cost computing.
