In 2013, the Intel® Software Academic Program, working together with the Intel Software Development Tools Team, brought Intel Software Conference to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The conference received 238 attendees in total, delivering hands on lab trainings and theoretical lectures. The infrastructure of the Manycore Lab implemented in 2013 was used to deliver this experience on a live Intel Xeon-Phi system. 2014 should be even bigger and better, including a Parallel Software Marathon. The pictures below highlight the exciting work that took place over the 5 days of conference.
We’re very pleased to announce this year’s cohort of Intel Student Partners! This is an extremely talented group of university students picked from 5 universities across Kenya, who will be running Intel activities on their campuses over the course of the year. This program is designed to enable students at leading universities across the country to have the opportunity to work closely with Intel and understand our latest technologies. The program is for students who realize the best technology careers come to those who chase their dreams.
With its roots in a 2009 event, PennApps is one of the best established Major League Hackathons. Combining with the hardware-focused “PennHacks” brought a wide spectrum of hardware and software innovations. The weather around Philadelphia at this time (February 14-16) was vicious, cutting the number of participa
The best hackathons are those that embody the true spirit of a hackathon -- learning new things, meeting new people, having fun, and if you're really lucky, building something cool. Earlier this month I took part in an event that had all of those ingredients and more -- MHacks in Detroit, Michigan.

INTRODUCTIONS: TEMPERATURE SENSORS AND THE COPROCESSOR
Thinking about helping out but don’t know where to start? Have questions or concerns? This list of information/F.A.Q. is for you.
What do I get out of this?
You'll gain experience teaching, public speaking, and managing multiple teams and projects. You'll hone your skills with the technologies being used. Also, the events are fun! You'll impact students’ lives in a positive way and if your hackathon is part of the Code for Good initiative, you'll be helping society at large.
These events can show non-coders new potential, teach effective software development practices, help students acquire specific technology and interpersonal skills, and bridge the gap between academia and the real world. In school, you learn and then apply; in the real world, you have to apply without learning. These events help participants “learn how to learn,” learning through application.
The first ever Intel Mobile computing curriculum workshop was successfully held in Intel Shanghai Zizhu site, with 30 attendees in total!
The Intel® Academic Program welcomed faculty and students from the University of Los Andes in Bogota Colombia. The group toured the Intel Museum and took pictures outside the Robert Noyce Building (RNB) in Santa Clara, CA. The faculty expressed interest in many aspects of the Intel® Academic Program, including the new programs for visual computing, security and mobile computing. We have new friends in Colombia and I look forward to more collaboration with the University of los Andes. Below are a few pictures from the visit:
