Hands-On GPU Programming Workshops in DC

I know at least a few HP customers are planning on getting new HP ProLiant SL250s servers loaded with the latest Nvidia Kepler GPUs delivered this month, but you don’t have to have an SL250s to register for one of these HP + Nvidia + Accelerware GPU programming workshops coming in January to the D.C. area.

In partnership with Nvidia and Acceleware, HP would like to invite all readers of my blog to attend one of the free, 2 day, hands on GPU Computing workshops, specifically designed for developers working in the defense and intelligence communities. These invitation only workshops have limited capacity – so please be sure respond quickly.

Event Details

These two day hands on workshops are designed for developers who are looking to develop comprehensive skills in writing and optimizing their code to fully leverage the parallel computing capabilities of GPUs using the CUDA platform.

The workshop will be provided by NVIDIA’s partner Acceleware, who has offered advanced CUDA training courses since 2008 and has delivered detailed instruction to hundreds of programmers.

The course is sponsored by HP and there are no course fees, complimentary breakfast and lunch are included for both days. The attendees should have some basic C or C++ knowledge, but no prior knowledge of parallel computing concepts is assumed. Each attendee will have access to an HP laptop equipped with a CUDA capable GPU and receive:

  • Manual of all lectures
  • Electronic copy of lab exercises
  • Certificate of Completion

    Course outline:

  • Overview of GPU Computing
  • Data-Parallel Architectures and the GPU Programming Model
  • The GPU Memory Model & Thread Cooperation
  • Introduction to Optimizations
  • Resource Management, Latency and Occupancy
  • Memory Optimizations
