Emanuel Buzek, Martin Kruliš

Description

Parapple is unique educational project that aims at improving parallel programing skills of the students. It provides game-like environment, where the user program avatars to perform desired tasks on a 2D grid. The tasks are typically designed in a way that promotes utilization of parallelism or demonstrate some synchronization problem.

Parapple uses its own language parascript, which is basically a simplified Javascript. Since it has C-like syntax, it can be easily adopted by new users and immediately used to solve parallel problems.
