Today’s application developers are faced with the harsh reality that the conventional methods of parallel execution are up against the wall. Hardware development is beginning to slow, and the free lunch is almost over. In this climate, it is more important now than ever to rethink our traditional approaches to parallel computation. New solutions must be developed with the scalability of applications being central to their design.
The HPX runtime system developed by the STE||AR Group is stirring up the pot by providing a modern implementation of all C++ standard facilities related to parallelism and concurrency, extended for the distributed use case. On this website, we would like to present the latest updates and news related to HPX’s development. If you are interested in our work and wish to get involved or just curious about something you found on our site please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or find us in the #ste||ar chat room on Freenode. We would love to hear from you!
