PARALUTION Labs Course Offerings

Our training courses give software developers a solid foundation in the latest technologies in GPU computing and provide valuable orientation in current hardware and software. Theory lectures and practical hands-on sessions are employed. Our goal is to give an overview of the basics and benefits of GPU computing technology. In addition, problems and algorithms from the developers’ area of interest may be incorporated into the existing code samples.
