XSEDE Monthly Workshop: OpenACC

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on March 30, 2017.

OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

The tentative agenda, subject to change, is below. It is designed to be time-zone friendly.

Very good overall, but wish it was a little faster paced with less time spent on historical/misc type stuff. Spent nearly half the presentation just discussing application and history!
