Training


Getting Started Videos

  • Intel® C++ Compiler Introduction: Two short videos (each about five minutes long) demonstrating how to use Intel C++ Compiler within Microsoft Visual Studio 2015* and introducing the different optimizations offered by Intel C++ and Intel® Fortran Compilers.
  • Performance Essentials with OpenMP* 4.0 Vectorization: Seven short videos (each about eight minutes long) that talk about techniques a developer can use for vector hardware to potentially improve application performance by using explicit vector programming methods with OpenMP 4.0 in C and C++.

Tutorials

These tutorials work with the supplied sample code to demonstrate important features in this release and can be found in the Intel Software Documentation Library.

Threading Your Application
This tutorial demonstrates how you can improve the performance of the sample application by building different parallel implementations (OpenMP* and Intel® Threading Building Blocks) of the same function using both the Intel compiler and other compilers.

Using Auto Vectorization
This tutorial demonstrates how you can improve the performance of the sample project by using the auto-vectorization feature of the Intel C++ Compiler.
