[Beowulf] Mobos for portable use

I have been in academics for the last 10 years in a research support role. Our graduating seniors in computer science and computer engineering did not understand the concepts of variable locking for openmp.  Or the concept that multiple threads sharing the same memory space could easily conflict.

These fairly si.ple concept are not even introduced in the curriculum until grad school.

Are we failing to train programmers with the skills for multithread?
I'm not in academics so I have not seen first-hand.
I'm been collecting material to prepare an Optimization User Guide
for a new computer that will have many Knights Landing chips.
What I've seen is that a lot has been written between 2015 and now,
concering SIMD and OpenMP.
It appears to me that there is plenty of didactit material if one
were inclined to teach the subject.
