This course gives an introduction to more modern features of the Fortran 2008 standard. Among subjects are more flexible handling of dynamically allocated objects, operator overloading, object oriented features and language interoperability. Thereafter an introduction to Co-Array Fortran (CAF) extensions is given as way to express distributed memory parallelism.

Learning outcome
At the end of the course you will be able to write and understand Fortran 2008 programs, which utilize more advanced concepts. You also will be able to write small parallel programs using CAF extensions.

Pre-requisites
The PATC course Fortran 95/2003 or equivalent knowledge in Fortran 95/2003. Using Unix/Linux as well as knowledge for how to use text editors like emacs or vi. Basic knowledge of C-language will also be helpful when teaching language interoperability.

Price: Free of charge
Lecturers: Mikko Byckling (CSC) & Sami Ilvonen (CSC)
