I will hold a tutorial on parallel computation with Racket places at Racketfest on March 23, 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

Parallelism in Racket

We use parallel computation, independent state, and message passing every day. Our world is wired around webservers and load-balancers. Racket allows us to create our parallel computation network inside a laptop.

In this tutorial we give a short introduction to Racket places. We introduce the basic concepts for independent computation and approach step-by-step how to use Racket places. Lastly, we play with examples including a worker pool manager. Essentially, we fork-bomb Racket.
