Learn parallelism and Threading – opportunity to attend Pilot class for FREE!

We created a new one day course on parallelism and threading. This is a great opportunity to learn about threading software for multi-core platforms. This course is targeted for Windows* C++ developers using Microsoft Visual Studio* 2005 or 2008. If you are in that category keep reading!
The performance benefits on modern computing platforms will come from threading software to take advantage of the many cores that will be available on modern platforms. Learn how to develop software that utilizes many cores in this class! We are building off of our experiences in creating training material for several years and we are taking a fresh look with this new class. We will conduct the pilot class on Friday 17 July at the Intel offices in Santa Clara. Familiarity with threads is helpful, but not required (target is beginning to intermediate experience with threads, experts would not benefit as much from this course). Course outline will be as follows:
• Introduction
– Why go parallel?
– Terminology
– Parallelization methodology
• Analysis/Design
– Finding opportunities for parallelism
• Introduction of Threads
– Threading environments
– Threading process
• Debug
– Finding parallel bugs
• Tune
– Scalability issues
– Data sharing & locking techniques
This class will introduce parallelism concepts and supplement learning with demonstrations and code samples. Students will also gain exposure to the new Intel® Parallel Studio product. We will have a number of Intel consulting engineers on hand to answer your questions during the breaks. I will be down there and look forward to meeting you!
To register for this class send email to itt.support@intel.com. Please include your name, company, email address and phone number. You will receive a confirmation in response providing you with final details. The course will begin at 9:00 AM in Santa Clara California and will run until 4:00 PM. Attendees must complete a survey providing feedback on the course and stay for the entire course. Lunch will be provided. See you there. Go Parallel!
