This tutorial teaches the fundamental tools and techniques for running GPU-accelerated Python applications using CUDA® and the NUMBA compilers. Participants will work through dozens of hands-on coding exercises, and at the end of the training, implement a new workflow to accelerate an example program originally designed for CPUs, observing impressive performance gains.
On completion of this tutorial, participants will have an understanding of the fundamental tools and techniques for GPU-accelerated Python applications with CUDA and Numba including the ability to:
