|Music Law: Recording, Management, Rights, and Performance Contracts Training Lynda.com|
Music contracts are tricky, but you're more likely to have a successful career in the music business if you can understand and negotiate their terms. In this course, author and attorney Rich Stim covers the main language, concepts, clauses, and stipulations in four major types of contracts: recording, management, performance, and rights agreements.
For example, when it comes to record contracts, it's important to know how advances and royalties work, how to maintain creative control, and what happens when a member leaves a band. Rich also tackles management contracts, describing what managers can do for you—and what to do when you need to let them go. Next, he explores the basic terms, riders, and payment options in performance contracts. Then learn about releases, artwork permissions, publishing and producer agreements, and other types of legal arrangements. Rich wraps up the course with a discussion of oral agreements, attorney fees and roles, and five basic rules worth remembering for every music contract.

|Introduction to MPI Training CI-Tutor|
The Message Passing Interface, or MPI, is a standard library of subroutines (Fortran) or function calls (C) that can be used to implement a message-passing program. MPI allows for the coordination of a program running as multiple processes in a distributed memory environment, yet is flexible enough to be used in a shared memory environment. MPI is the defacto standard for message-passing, and as such, MPI programs should compile and run on any platform supporting it. This provides ease of use and source code portability. It also allows efficient implementations across a range of architectures, offers a great deal of functionality, includes different communication types and special routines for common collective operations, handles user-defined data types and topologies, and supports heterogeneous parallel architectures.
This tutorial provides an introduction to MPI so you can begin using it to develop message-passing programs in Fortran or C.
Target Audience: Programmers and researchers interested in using or writing parallel programs to solve complex problems.
Prerequisites: No prior experience with MPI or parallel programming is required to take this course. However, an understanding of computer programming is necessary.
Note: This course was previously offered on CI-Tutor.
|Introduction to OpenMP Training CI-Tutor|
OpenMP is a standardized API for parallelizing Fortran, C, and C++ programs on shared-memory architectures. This tutorial provides an introduction to OpenMP in a concise, progressive fashion, so you can begin to apply OpenMP to your codes in a minimum amount of time. Some general information on parallel processing is also included to the extent necessary to explain various points about OpenMP. Examples are presented in both Fortran and C.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic programming in Fortran, C, or C++.
Note: This course was previously offered on CI-Tutor.
|Parallel Computing on High-Performance Systems Training CI-Tutor|
This tutorial provides an introduction to parallel computing on high-performance systems. Core concepts covered include terminology, programming models, system architecture, data and task parallelism, and performance measurement. Hands-on exercises using OpenMP will explore how to build new parallel applications and transform serial applications into parallel ones incrementally in a shared memory environment. (OpenMP is a standardized API for parallelizing Fortran, C, and C++ programs on shared-memory architectures.) After completing this tutorial, you will be prepared for more advanced or different parallel computing tools and techniques that build on these core concepts.
