Course Description

Fundamentals of Accelerated Computing with CUDA C/C++ workshop hosted by NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute and the Earth Observation Research & Innovation Centre (EORIC).


This workshop teaches the fundamental tools and techniques for accelerating C/C++ applications to run on massively parallel GPUs with CUDA®. You’ll learn how to write code, configure code parallelization with CUDA, optimize memory migration between the CPU and GPU accelerator, and implement the workflow that you’ve learned on a new task—accelerating a fully functional, but CPU-only, particle simulator for observable massive performance gains. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have access to additional resources to create new GPU-accelerated applications on your own.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop, you’ll have an understanding of the fundamental tools and techniques for GPU-accelerating C/C++ applications with CUDA and be able to:

  • Write code to be executed by a GPU accelerator
  • Expose and express data and instruction-level parallelism in C/C++ applications using CUDA
  • Utilize CUDA-managed memory and optimize memory migration using asynchronous prefetching
  • Leverage command line and visual profilers to guide your work
  • Utilize concurrent streams for instruction-level parallelism
  • Write GPU-accelerated CUDA C/C++ applications, or refactor existing CPU-only applications, using a profile-driven approach
Why Deep Learning Institute Hands-On Training?
  • Learn to build deep learning and accelerated computing applications for industries such as autonomous vehicles, finance, game development, healthcare, robotics, and more.
  • Obtain hands-on experience with the most widely used, industry-standard software, tools, and frameworks.
  • Gain real-world expertise through content designed in collaboration with industry leaders such as the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Mayo Clinic, and PwC.
  • Earn an NVIDIA DLI certificate to demonstrate your subject matter competency and support career growth.
  • Access content anywhere, anytime with a fully configured, GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud.
