Boulder GPU Hackathon 2018

After months of planning between Nvidia, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), ARM, Fluid Numerics LLC, CU Boulder/CIRES, and Oak Ridge Leadership Class Facility (OLCF), the Boulder GPU Hackathon is coming up this week ! Compute resources for this hackathon include OLCF’s Summitdev, and a “bare-metal” style cluster on Google Cloud Platform consisting of 20 nodes equipped with Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs.

Developer teams from NASA, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Research, NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, University of Chicago, University of Maryland, University of Colorado (Boulder),  University of Washington, SilcsBio, and General Atomics will be teaming with mentors from Nvidia, PGI, Google Cloud Platform, ARM, national laboratories, and universities for this one week intense coding sprint. All of these teams are looking to accelerate scientific applications with GPUs and many will be porting to GPUs for the first time.
