A GPU Hackathon is an organized workshop that teams up programmers at all experience levels with experts to facilitate sharing of knowledge and skills in GPU programming. Teams of software developers can come to a hackathon with existing code they want to accelerate on GPUs. Expert mentors help teams develop a plan to port or optimize their code before the start of the workshop. During the one-week coding sprint, teams work with their mentors to transition code to the GPU and achieve software performance goals. This hands-on approach is increasing the number of new GPU programmers and promotes continued learning within the community that participates in hackathons.
