You can now try OpenCoarrays and Gfortran in the cloud, courtesy of Zaak Beekman and the Sourcery Institute. Just navigate to http://bit.ly/TryCoarrays and then click “Launch”. This awesome project is enabled by various other awesome tools like Binder, Jupyter, and GitHub. Truly, we are living in the future.
Coarrays are the parallel processing component built into the Fortran language (standardized in Fortran 2008). It uses the Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) and Single-Program-Multiple-Data (SPMD) programming models. OpenCoarrays is an open source library to enable coarray usage in Gfortran.
