Online workshops on Parallel Programming and Optimization for Intel® Architecture

Colfax offers free Web-based workshops on Parallel Programming and Optimization for Intel® Architecture, including Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. Workshops include 20 hours of Web-based instruction (10 days starting March 7 through March 18) and up to 3 weeks of remote access to dedicated training servers for hands-on exercises. Workshop beginning on March 7 is free to everyone thanks to Intel’s sponsorship.

Currently there is not remote access seats left, however it is not necessary to have remote access to participate in the hands-on part. Instructor will demonstrate the discussed programming exercises live, and participants can either follow along, or use own computing system (Intel compilers required). If you have an account on hpc-class, CyEnce or Condo clusters, you can run exercises there. Colfax may also be able to provide remote access to participants later in the course if other students no longer need it.
