Course Project: The Home Stretch

Here is the plan for the remainder of the semester for the course projects:
  • Midnight Friday 12/3: Milestone 3.5 (working parallel code, ideally some performance optimization but not required).  We will promise feedback by midnight Sunday 12/5.  While this milestone is not strictly required, we highly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity for guidance and feedback.  You are expected to demonstrate good parallel speedups.  If you are not able to do this, but are able to show improvements over this milestone that is a start for which we can give you some credit.  If you don't participate in the milestone, though, we won't be able to do that.
  • Class Monday 12/13: Milestone 4 (final code) At this time you must turn in your working code, as well as a final report of no more than 6 pages outlining your final design, and describing and analyzing the scaling performance results you achieved.
  • Tuesday 12/14: Project presentations will be throughout the day on Tuesday 12/14.  Sign up for your 45 min slot here. Each group will briefly present their code design and analysis (5-10 mins, slides optional) followed by 20 minutes discussion and Q&A.
