C++ AMP: An introduction to heterogeneous programming with C++
SESSION: C++ AMP: An introduction to heterogeneous programming with C++
EVENT TYPE: Tutorials
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
Heterogeneous programming is a key solution to meeting performance goals for HPC algorithms. C++ AMP is a new open specification heterogeneous programming model, which builds on the established C++ language. This half day tutorial is designed for programmers who are looking to develop skills in writing and optimizing applications using C++ AMP. Participants will be provided with an introduction to the programing model, the tools, and the knowledge needed to accelerate data-parallel algorithms by taking advantage of hardware such as GPUs. A combination of lectures, programming demonstrations and group exercises will provide participants with: 1. An introduction to the fundamentals of C++ AMP including basic functionality, syntax and data parallelism 2. An understanding of the Tiling API within C++ AMP for performance improvement 3. An overview and instructions on how to use C++ AMP specialized features available in Visual Studio 2012, including the Parallel and GPU Debugger
