Familiar with OpenMP

Tip - An Application Program Interface (API) that may be used to explicitly direct multi-threaded, shared memory parallelism.

Details - The OpenMP Application Program Interface (API) supports multi-platform shared-memory parallel   programming in C/C++ and Fortran on all architectures, including Unix platforms and Windows NT platforms. Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software vendors, OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives shared-memory parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from the desktop to the supercomputer.
