Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 8th and 9th, 2011.
Roni has over 13 years of software development experience in electronic design automation and computer graphics industries. In 2008 she left EDA to found Kloobok LLC ( http://kloobok.com) and develop Maze, a tool for testing and debugging parallel applications. Roni has M.S. in Computer Science from SUNY at Stony Brook and a B.S. in Physics and Applied Math from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
We will discuss the connection between Linux kernel scheduler behavior and non-deterministic nature of multithreaded and multiprocessed programs. We will look at the issues faced by a multicore programmer, and look at Maze, a new concurrent development tool. We will discuss Maze architecture and look at the tool in operation.
The target audience is software engineers, CS students and researchers, and anybody else who is interested in parallel programming, software testing, and debugging. Participants are expected to be familiar with the concept of a Linux process. The examples will be in C with the use of POSIX threads API.
