"An un-parallel resource for learning trade skills of using Intel Xeon Phi platform for Parallel Computing. What makes this program all the more engaging is its focus on the 'doing' aspect as there is no substitute to 'learning by doing'."                  

Gaurav Verma

HOW attendee

"I am a physicist working with Monte Carlo models of particle transport on matter. My main working language is Fortran and I was able to follow the course without problems. The course gave me all the tools needed to start working with the Intel Xeon Phi MICs."

Edgardo Doerner

HOW attendee

"This is a very well thought out course that gradually introduces the important concepts. The presenter and his team are experts with a lot of experience as evident from the lectures. The live demos for optimizations are very educative and well executed."
