Start programming with CUDA


About this training
GPU Computing

Graphical Processor Units (GPUs) can be used to speed up certain scientific computing tasks by orders of magnitude. Thus GPUs are now available on many HPC computing clusters including the university Linux cluster UBELIX. 


Learn about computing methods for GPUs and run your first CUDA code.

Learning outcomes - participants know/can
  • About GPU computingand trends in HPC
  • GPU hardware architecture
  • How to program on GPU
  • CUDA syntax
Target group
  • UNIBE staff members, students and potential users involved in scientific research
  • Participants must bring own laptops and should have a minimal Linux and C/C++ programming knowledge 
  • The training alternates between short theoretical introductions and programming exercises.
  • A certificate will be delivered to participants who have attended the whole training. The certificate is valid as two elective half days for the CAS Applied Data Science.
  • The coaches are local or external experts
