"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'."
"The 'Deep Dive' webinar series on code modernization and optimization was likely
the best training I could undertake, in order to quickly, yet comprehensively, prepare
myself for parallel programming for the Intel Xeon Phi architectures. Colfax Research
perfectly balanced lectures with hands-on lab activities, making it truly experiential
program, which naturally shows the learner what the next steps are."
"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."
"Writing and optimizing parallel code for the new Knights Landing processors and
co-processors will not be easy for most of us. Fortunately, Colfax International
has produced a comprehensive suite of training tools to help: a printed book available
in paper and PDF formats; a series of webinars in which you can look over the shoulder
of an expert optimizing a wealth of carefully crafted code examples; a prepared
set of code exercises, complete with solutions, that take a student step-by-step
through optimization essentials; and, research papers that provide examples from
Colfax's own optimization projects. There is no better place to prepare for code
modernization than the Colfax web site."
