MIT's PS3 Class

From kotaku.com

The first-ever class on the Playstation 3's Cell Broaband Engine has just wrapped up over at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

During the four-week course students learned about the new microprocessor and designed and implemented projects on Playstation 3s. The student with the best project, a 3D version of Pong, presented their work at this year's Game Developers Conference.

The course, which focused mainly on parallel programming, was taught by Saman Amarasinghe, a professor in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Dr. Rodric Rabbah of IBM.
