The Appentra GPU hackathons
Appentra’s mission is to help more people use High
Performance Computing (HPC), and one of the best
ways to do that is to provide a hands-on training
environment where participants not only learn, but
actively work on developing their own software.
The Appentra Hackathon program is designed to
provide the best learning outcomes from a parallel
programming training environment. We work with
everyone from inexperienced programmers to more
advanced programmers who want to move to the
latest GPU technology.
During the week the event is structured to ensure that the majority of the time is spent with attendees and mentors working on real code brought to the event by the attendees.
We provide a series of short lectures during the event,
tailored to the needs of attendees based on their
We work at finding candidate teams that will benefit from attending the hackathon, identifying their needs, and working with them to provide a useful application.
