Extra - Laboratory

The following are the words that I succesfully guessed in the game for extra points in the Laboratory( 7 words for the first games + 12 words for the second game)

First Game
  • Graphics. Computer graphics are graphics created using computers and, more generally, the representation and manipulation of image data by a computer with help from specialized software and hardware.
  • Parallelize.The action of transforming a secuential program into a parallel program.
  • Assignment. In programming aassignment statement sets or re-sets the value stored in the storage location(s) denoted by a variable name. In most imperative computer programming languages, assignment statements are one of the basic statements. Common notations for the assignment operator are = and :=.
  • PseudocodeIn computer science and numerical computationpseudocode is an informal high-level description of the operating principle of a computer program or other algorithm. I
  • Platformcomputing platform includes some sort of hardware architecture and a software framework (including application frameworks), where the combination allows software, particularly application software, to run.
  • Sharing. In computer science, the issue of handling shared resources figures prominently. 
  • Consumption. The act of consuming resources from a given computer. This resources could be memory, CPU processing, bandwidth, etc

Second Game
  • disjoint. In mathematics, two sets are said to be disjoint if they have no element in common.
  • variation.  A function that relates the values of one variable to those of other variables.
  • follow.  Go or come after (a person or thing proceeding ahead); move or travel behind.
  • concurrent.  Occurring or existing simultaneously or side by side.
  • mathematical. Of or relating to mathematics.
  • step.  To cause (a computer) to execute a single instruction.
  • interpret. To  execute the source code directly.  Translate source code into some efficient intermediate representation (code) and immediately executes it.
  • nondeterministic.  A property of a computation which may have more than oneresult.
  • fire.  Combustion or burning, in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke.
  • produce.  To bring (something) into existence; yield
  • elementary.  Of, relating to, or constituting the basic, essential, or fundamental part
  • disabled.  Turned off. Not active

  1. Son 19 puntos repartidos en grupos de 3+3+3+3+3+3+1 para las semanas que faltan y la que no tuviste nada. Ya estás a cupo lleno en el lab - con que publiques avances semanales es un 100 seguro del lab de distribuidos.
