  2. 2. It’s time to (re)discover Fortran If you didn’t already know, Fortran is an amazingly powerful and flexible programming language that is natively parallel, making it uniquely suited for efficiently handling problems like complex simulations, long-range predictions, and ultra-precise designs. The MareNostrum 4 Supercomputer in Barcelona uses parallelism for many scientific applications.
  3. 3. Fortran is always getting better While Fortran is the oldest high- level programming language, it is constantly improving. It's also the leading language used in high performance (HPC) and parallel programming and Fortran 2018 will include additional parallel features and improve interoperability with C. HPC requires communication between CPUs and has to be distributed through a network.
  4. 4. See what Fortran can do Modern Fortran teaches you how to develop fast, efficient parallel applications with Fortran. You’ll work on building a tsunami simulator using parallel concepts that can be applied to your own projects—including powerful applications such as machine learning, HPC, data analysis, and forecasting.
  5. 5. Learn from a Fortran expert The author is a meteorologist and oceanographer. A Fortran programmer since 2006, he has worked with teams from United States Navy and NASA on developing and improving Earth system prediction models, has authored two general-purpose Fortran libraries, and is currently working on a startup porting Fortran to the cloud for weather and ocean prediction.
