2 Days GPU Training Course

Requirements
• General programming experience.
• Basic knowledge of C, C++ and Fortran.
• Basic Linux user experience.
Outcome
Course attendees will learn how to perform fast porting of existing sequential applications
onto NVIDIA GPUs using GPU-enabled math libraries, templated and directive-based
programming. These methods are focused on rapid development, rather than maximum
performance, and may better suite for large applications and limited resources.
