Acceleware Reaches Milestone with 100th HPC Programming Course 
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- Acceleware Ltd.
(TSX VENTURE:AXE) today announced the 100th course in its series of
High Performance Computing (HPC) classes tailored to professional
developers requiring advanced training to write faster and more
efficient code for intense compute applications. Houston was the
venue for the milestone course, instructing programmers from the
energy industry on leading-edge software design and optimization for
the NVIDIA(R) CUDA(R) parallel computing platform and programming
model. 
"Acceleware's first HPC course was taught in Saudi Arabia in 2009.
Since that time 1,207 students on 5 continents have received training
by our team of experts, learning how to craft applications that
derive maximum performance from today's hybrid architectures to meet
their companies' objectives," said Robert Miller, Chief Marketing and
Sales Officer at Acceleware.  
Acceleware's industry-leading programming courses are offered in
CUDA, OpenCL(TM), MPI and OpenMP(R). The courses are geared towards
professional programmers who need to develop skills in application
design and optimization for GPU accelerators, APUs, multi-core CPUs
and FPGAs. The training is led by Acceleware programmers who bring
the company's nine years of programming commercial high-performance
applications to the classroom. The course content has been
specifically planned to accelerate the learning curve with
progressive lectures and plenty of hands-on exercises.  
"The popularity of Acceleware's high-quality courses demonstrates
that growing numbers of programmers are embracing GPU-accelerated
computing for their engineering and scientific work," said Ian Buck,
general manager of GPU computing software at NVIDIA. "I look forward
to continuing our work with Acceleware to educate the next generation
of CUDA programmers." 
The 2013 GPU Technology Conference (GTC 2013) is the premier event
for accelerated computing. Held in San Jose, March 18-21, the event
showcases innovative research, applications and the latest advances
in GPU technology. Acceleware will be delivering four CUDA tutorials
at the conference and exhibiting on the conference floor in booth
604.
