- gunrock — a CUDA library for graph primitives that refactors, integrates, and generalizes best-of-class GPU implementations of breadth-first search, connected components, and betweenness centrality into a unified code base useful for future development of high-performance GPU graph primitives.

- How to Share Data with a Statistician — some instruction on the best way to share data to avoid the most common pitfalls and sources of delay in the transition from data collection to data analysis.
- Bazel — a build tool, i.e. a tool that will run compilers and tests to assemble your software, similar to Make, Ant, Gradle, Buck, Pants, and Maven. Google’s build tool, to be precise.
- You Can’t Have Exactly-Once Delivery — not about the worst post office ever. FLP and the Two Generals Problem are not design complexities, they are impossibility results.
GPUs bring massively parallel computing into reach
The attributes that make GPUs optimized for graphics can also be used for general computing. Over the last 3 years, GPU computing has moved to the mainstream.
