Google code for educators

(via the Google Blog) Google started a website to gather teaching materials for CS educators, covering some of the most recent technologies. Right now it has some material for AJAX Programming, Distributed Systems and Web Security. There are some video lectures and presentations. There is already some material on parallel programming (mostly related to their MapReduce) that should be of use to bioinformatics.

One a related topic Tiago has on his blog started a multipart series about "Bioinformatics, multi-core CPUs and grid computing". The first and second part are already available.
