<p>Factors driving the growth of parallel computing and those inhibiting its growth are identified. The impact of advances in communication, VLSI technology, and embedded systems on parallel architecture are discussed. The two categories of parallel programs-transformational and reactive-are examined. The use of templates and libraries is considered. Reasoning about parallel processes in the context of software design is discussed. Programming environments and operating systems support are addressed.</p>
