PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 15 -- The Portland Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics and a leading supplier of compilers for high-performance computing (HPC), and nCore Design, a leading training and professional services provider, today announced their collaboration to offer a new 2-day training course on programming GPUs using the PGI Accelerator programming model.
The new course, titled NCT-500 PGI Accelerator Programming, has been developed by nCore working with PGI. The two-day intensive training course employs in-depth hands-on lectures and laboratories to provide attendees with comprehensive training on all aspects of programming GPUs with PGI’s directive-based programming model. The course is appropriate for engineers, scientists and other domain experts seeking to improve their GPU programming skills. An intermediate knowledge of C or Fortran programming, as well as knowledge of computer architectures and corresponding software development experience, are mandatory pre-requisites for this course.
"This course will provide attendees with the insights and skills necessary to have them up and running quickly porting their applications to GPUs," said Douglas Miles, Director of The Portland Group. "nCore brings tremendous expertise, along with a solid track record for providing quality training and professional service."
"GPU programming skills are in high demand and we are thrilled to be working closely with The Portland Group to produce this course based on PGI’s Accelerator Programming Model," said Ian Lintault, Managing Director of nCore. "This instructor-led course will be offered at client locations for groups of eight to 15. Our hands-on learning style assures students will be able to reinforce theory and concepts with practical exercises - a successful training model nCore has perfected."
The two-day course, NCT-500 PGI Accelerator Programming, is available from nCore starting November 14, 2011 and is priced at $1,895.00 per student. For more information, contact email@example.com or ncoredesign.com/pgi/ for a booking.
