With the emergence of multicore and manycore processors, engineers must design and develop software in drastically new ways to benefit from the computational power of all cores. However, developing parallel software is much harder than sequential software because parallelism can't be abstracted away easily. Authors Hans Vandierendonck and Tom Mens provide an overview of technologies and tools to support developers in this complex and error-prone task.
