Tiny Titan is a $1,000 classroom supercomputer designed to teach aspiring scientists the basics of parallel computing. Unlike modern desktops and laptops that hide parallelism from the user, Tiny Titan makes parallel concepts explicit.
Tiny Titan features interactive simulations that showcase the basic concepts of parallel computing. An Xbox controller allows students to explore load-balancing and communication by directing the simulation in real-time. Each of these simulations are freely available on our GitHub.
Many people have been variously involved in- and affected by- the Tiny Titan project which was started principally by Adam Simpson, Tony DiGirolamo, and Robert French.
