This workshop teaches the fundamental tools and techniques for accelerating C/C++ applications to run on massively parallel GPUs with CUDA. Work your way through dozens of hands-on coding exercises using a live, GPU-enabled development environment in the cloud. Learn how to write code to be executed by a GPU accelerator, configure code parallelization using the CUDA thread hierarchy, manage and optimize memory migration between the CPU and GPU accelerator, leverage command line and visual profilers to guide your work, and utilize concurrent streams for instruction-level parallelism. Finish by implementing the workflow that you have 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 will have access to additional resources to create new GPU-accelerated applications on your own.
At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have an understanding of the fundamental tools and techniques for GPU-accelerating C/C++ applications with CUDA, and will be able to:
â— Expose and express data and instruction-level parallelism in C/C++ applications using CUDA.
â— Utilize CUDA managed memory and optimize memory migration using asynchronous prefetching.
â— Write GPU-accelerated CUDA C/C++ applications, or refactor existing CPU-only applications, using a profile-driven approach.
