## About the ‘F’ Word

“The ‘F’ Word” series is meant to document the use of modern fortran for developing an extensible library that can be used to solve conservation laws (PDEs) using spectral and spectral element methods. By documenting the development process, my hope is to curate examples of using OO Fortran as well as Fortran-C interoperability features for portable GPU and multi-GPU application development.

Another goal is to dispel the idea that Fortran is just about punch cards and GOTO statements by providing an example of an active modern Fortran project. I’ve heard too many times that Fortran is archaic, when it’s clear from this community that Fortran is alive and well in a vibrant and growing community.

For those interested in the mathematical theory, I’m putting together notes before each livestream that covers material relevant to the algorithms that are later implemented in Fortran. Here, the idea is to depict the process of transitioning from an idea and a mathematical model into an implementation in OO Fortran.

The current plan is to have livestreams every two weeks and to start putting out polished videos at least once per month. Rather than creating a new topic every time and polluting this Discourse, I figured it’d be best to share updates on this activity in this one topic.

Feel free to post any questions or discussions about this series or any of the material here. I enjoy spending time on this regularly and I hope this community finds this valuable.
