NVIDIA SC14 Preview

While SC14 doesn’t officially kick off until Sunday, I thought I would share a quick preview of what I’m looking forward to in New Orleans.

Before you go, you definitely should download InsideHPC’s Print and Fly guide to New Orleans. Then head over to the NVIDIA SC14 Event Highlights page and get your must-do list scheduled.

In the NVDIA booth we will once again have our GPU Technology Theatre with an amazing lineup of speakers from around the world. They are sure to inspire even more developers to learn CUDA, so you better sign up before the show for our Developer Zone Live, where right in the NVIDIA booth you can take a hands-on CUDA programming tutorial powered by QwikLABs and mentored by NVIDIA CUDA gurus. Who knows, next year your work may be selected to highlight in the theatre. Rumor has it that our CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will even be making a few appearances in the booth.

If you don’t have time during the show, or can’t make it to the show, you can still take the same hands-on CUDA tutorials from the QwikLABs site. At the show or not, you will want to follow all the latest NVIDIA SC14 news online, follow @NVIDIA and @NVIDIATesla on Twitter and watch for hashtag #NVSC14.

I’ll be in New Orleans early to attend HP-CAST, our partner HP’s HPC user group. There is still time to register and you won’t want to miss my HP-CAST Friday afternoon session titled On The Road to Exascale, Powering New Discovery with GPUs. On Saturday I’m presenting another session on GPUs for Machine Learning and Big Data.

Check back during the week for more updates and analysis from the conference, it promises to be an exciting week!
