Writing GPU code in Python is easier today than ever!
I joined NVIDIA in 2019 and I was brand new to GPU development. In that time, Ive gotten to grips with the fundamentals of writing accelerated code in Python. I was amazed to discover that I didnt need to learn C++ and I didnt need new development tools. Writing GPU code in Python is easier today than ever, and in this tutorial, I will share what Ive learned and how you can get started with accelerating your code.
We will work through various materials and examples to get you started with GPU development in Python using open source libraries.
