GPU Hackathon

Got Code? Accelerate with GPU programming!

A GPU Hackathon is an organized workshop that teams programmers at all experience levels with experts to facilitate sharing of knowledge and skills in GPU programming. Teams of software developers can come to a hackathon with existing code they want to accelerate on GPUs. Expert mentors from universities, national labs and industries will be in attendance.

During the one-week coding sprint, teams work with mentors to transition code to the GPU and achieve software performance goals. This hands-on approach is increasing the number of new GPU programmers and promotes continued learning within the community that participates in hackathons.
