Nvidia is expanding its academic GPU programming classes. This time, however, it is offering a free class.
The company said it is partnering with Udacity to provide insight in parallel programming with a class that is designed to hold material worth about one week of studying. This specific class is described as an introduction to the development model and covers CUDA coding with "a series of image processing algorithms, such as you might find in Photoshop or Instagram."
Students can test their code on the company's recently announced cloud GPUs. The class is taught by John Owens, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California, Davis, as well as David Luebke senior director of graphics research at Nvidia.
Anyone can sign up for the course, so check it out if you're interested.
