Acceleware offers upcoming CUDA and C++ AMP training events

September 2nd, 2013

Acceleware, partnering with NVIDIA, if offering a four-day CUDA training course designed for programmers in the oil and gas industry who are looking to develop comprehensive skills in writing and optimizing applications that fully leverage the many-core processing capabilities of the GPU. Commonly used algorithms in oil and gas such as filtering and FFTs will be used and profiled in the examples. The case study on day 4 will focus on efficient implementation of 3D convolution, which is highly applicable to reverse time migration. A background in oil and gas is not necessary. Register here.

Acceleware training program manager Kelly Goss is hosting a 4 day C++ AMP training course in Boston, MA September 10 -13. The course will cover an overview of GPU computing, C++ 11 Lambda syntax, data-parallel architectures and the C++ AMP programming model. Every day consists of lectures and hands-on exercises (laptops for student’s use provided for the duration of the course).  Click here for full details and registration.

C++ AMP Courses

June 26th, 2012

C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP) is a new open specification heterogeneous programming model, which builds on the established C++ language. Developed for heterogeneous platforms/computing C++ AMP is designed to accelerate the execution of your C++ code by taking advantage of the data-parallel hardware that is commonly present as a GPU and multi-core CPU. This four day course is aimed at programmers who are looking to develop comprehensive skills in writing and optimizing applications using C++ AMP.

Delivered by Acceleware’s Developers (as opposed to trained trainers!), the course is designed for programmers looking to acquire comprehensive skills in accelerating applications through parallel programming. Read the rest of this entry »

Beyond3D C++ AMP contest

June 25th, 2012

Beyond3D’s first C++ AMP focused contest accepts submissions until August 31, 2012. The contest’s goal is to use parallel programming in order to speed up solving the Traveling Salesman’s Problem. All relevant details are provided on the contest’s dedicated page.
