despicable me—themed supercomputer

I gave a talk on Tuesday to an eager group of 155 attendees at the monthly SanDiego.js meetup on the topic of “Supercomputing in JavaScript”. I had an opportunity to show the new Raspberry Pi 3 supercomputer which I’d built and took it through its paces.

I think they mostly loved the audio events for assembling the minions and sending them to bed (shutting off the remote nodes). There was just enough time to also show the obligatory “Hello, Minions!” demo program to exercise the Message Passing Interface. I received a wide variety of questions and compliments from the group. And of course afterward, everyone who owned a Raspberry Pi came over to discuss their own projects, which was cool.

Here’s the PowerPoint presentation from that talk, in case you’re interested.
