More Than Just Talk: Get Hands-On Coding Experience at GPU Tech Conference
Our GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose, Calif., next week has something for everyone: game developers, scientists, software engineers, automotive designers, and movie-makers. Here's a sneak peak at one of the conference's highlights ' be sure to drop by our blog next week for complete coverage.
Mad scientist? Would-be James Bond villain? Or do you just have a lot of research you need to get done in a hurry? Whatever your project, GPUs can help you do more compute work, using less power.
This year's GTC will offer more than just great conversations. Thanks to the cloud, we're also planning to give more attendees than ever the opportunity to sit down and crank out some code.
For the first time ever, NVIDIA will offer attendees the ability to use their own laptops to tap into a powerful CUDA Cloud Development Platform hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
If you're not a software developer, the story here is that GPUs are being used to solve a wider-array of general computing problems than ever before. And their power is becoming more widely available thanks to offerings such as AWS and our own NVIDIA GRID technology.
If you are a developer, what this means is that you can take advantage of powerful GPU accelerated systems in the cloud to develop and deploy your applications, explains Will Ramey, our product manager for GPU Computing.
Using Amazon's Cluster GPU Instances with two powerful NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and 22GB of memory in each system, Ramey hopes to attract nearly a third of the conference's more than 3,000 attendees to one of the 17 hands-on lab sessions that are scheduled over three days at the conference (many of them are already sold out, so reserve your seat today).
