Harlan targets complexity for GPGPU programming and compiles to OpenCL

• Tags:

HPC programmers who are tired of managing low-level details when using OpenCL or CUDA to write general purpose applications for GPUs (GPGPU) may be interested in Harlan, a new declarative programming language designed to mask the complexity and eliminate errors common in GPGPU application development. The idea with Harlan is to keep developers focused on the high-level HPC programming challenge at hand, instead of getting bogged down with the nitty gritty details of GPU development and optimization. Harlan's syntax is based on the language Scheme, and compiles to Khronos Group's OpenCL.
