Re: Wanting to contribute with parallelising solutions
If you want to work on a desktop app you should definitely use Vala.
The language is very easy to learn and our devs or people on #vala will
help you if you ask kindly.
If you haven't seen this already, here are examples for synchronizing
threads and communication between threads.
Thanks for wanting to contribute and good luck with your project!

For the next few months I am to base a uni project on parallelizing

So, are there an elementary/community app maintainers that would know
of some task that would benefit from being parallel? It would be
better if the kind of task had significant improvement potential. If
you're not sure about the potential, I would still be interesting in
Past reading documentation for vala, I'm not at all experienced in
using the language. But any memory model and parallelization specific
problems I find, I could approach the vala community. If you're
suggestion is using C and pthreads, then that could actually be
better for both this projects requirements and depth of contributed
Thanks for reading. I hope to hear back from some people!
