Announcing The Machine User Group



By Curt Hopkins, Managing Editor, Hewlett Packard Labs

At Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Discover conference, we did not just announce a functioning, full-scale Memory-Driven Computing prototype. We also announced the formation of The Machine User Group.

The Machine User Group will provide developers, technologists and industry experts with a place to engage in an interactive conversation about what it means to start programming in a Memory-Driven Computing ecosystem and how to use the Memory-Driven Computing Developer Toolkit, and provide them a place to find out the latest news about Memory-Driven Computing training and resources that will help them understand and employ the promise of this new architecture, like emulation environments.

On the Labs site, there is a sign up form if you use if wish to join this group. (Oh, do. Won’t you?)

Here on Behind the Scenes at Labs, we have also created a new tab, “The Machine User Group.” This is bigger news than it may seem at first glance.

This is not just a new organizational tab, it is a new channel which we will use to offer up news and analysis on programming in the new world of Memory-Driven Computing.

A small battalion of specialists will be contributing to this blog-within-a-blog. These include Sharad Singhal, director of Machine applications and software; Christina Lee, senior communications lead for Memory-Driven Computing; and Dan Feldman, systems software research director; as well as a variety of industry experts. Members of The Machine User Group will also have the opportunity to contribute.

HPE and Labs have always been open source-friendly. The Machine project is no exception, and The Machine User Group is the expression of its openness. We invite you to explore the possibilities of Memory-Driven Computing and navigate a way around the end of Moore’s Law.

“We do not have a monopoly on creativity,” said Singhal. “We just have the tools that will allow developers to try their ideas at scale.”

In other words, as a member of The Machine User Group, you’re not ancillary to the project. You are the project. Join us!
