Full-day Workshop


The CUDA computing platform enables the acceleration of CPU-only applications to run on the world’s fastest massively parallel GPUs. Experience C/C++ application acceleration by:

  • Accelerating CPU-only applications to run their latent parallelism on GPUs

  • Utilizing essential CUDA memory management techniques to optimize accelerated applications

  • Exposing accelerated application potential for concurrency and exploiting it with CUDA streams

  • Leveraging command line and visual profiling to guide and check your work

Upon completion, you’ll be able to accelerate and optimize existing C/C++ CPU-only applications using the most essential CUDA tools and techniques. You’ll understand an iterative style of CUDA development that will allow you to ship accelerated applications fast.

Prerequisites: Basic C/C++ competency including familiarity with variable types, loops, conditional statements, functions, and array manipulations.

Technologies: C/C++, CUDA
