Learning/Teaching to do large scale parallel programming

With advent of the cloud, learning to do large scale parallel programming is becoming a useful skill. For an example, Google needs graduates to learn those things in the University. This is a old field, but has surfaced since the cloud. NSF did a workshop on the topic, 2008 NSF Data-Intensive Scalable Computing in Education Workshop. There some material, and pointers there.

As you would guess, Map-Reduce is the kind of the start point, but there are many others.
