What does Bruce Lee want!?!

Bruce LeeOK, I suckered you in with that title. I don’t care what Bruce Lee wants – he’s dead! But you’re probably not. So what do you want from this blog? 90% of the hits are to posts like “Getting started with TBB” or “My first CUDA program”. Is your main interest only in the details of how to setup a parallel programming environment? Are you happy to investigate parallel programming techniques on your own after that, or do you want follow-on examples? Or are you looking for something else? If so, where are you getting the information you need?

Since you took the time to visit this page, please spend another moment and suggest what you would like to see in my blog. Don’t make me send Bruce after you!

    I’m just getting started in CUDA programming and high performance computing in general.

    Some book reviews on anything related to what you’re teaching on this site would be great. I love the site, but I also would love to have some books to work with.

    I think you have a really great blog. Actually, this is the kind of blog that I ‘d also like to have for my field of expertise, so as to share knowledge with other people, however I haven’t started it yet. You re an inspiration though.

    Anyways, what I would like to read is more about the separate kind of memories. Your post https://llpanorama.wordpress.com/2008/06/11/threads-and-blocks-and-grids-oh-my/ is great and explains stuff. Together with Dr. Dobbs articles, I ve started to learn how to use blocks, threads etc, but I haven’t understand yet how to use the different kind of memories in the hierarchy. Maybe I will find this kind of information in later posts, but till now this is what I am missing.

      Thanks for your comments! I haven’t done much with this blog lately, mostly because high-performance computing doesn’t have much to do with how I try to make a living. When you start your blog, make sure it’s in an area where you have constant day-to-day involvement. That will make it easier to maintain a constant stream of posts. Send me a link when you start.

    More CUDA examples!…please?

    I was looking to get started with CUDA and this site offers a good start. Tutorials are available at a lot of places. But getting started is what is really difficult. I would be looking forward to more CUDA stuff from you!

  5. I came here looking to learn more about the CUDA toolchain and programming with CUDA because I just saw ORC (http://www.schleef.org/orc/documentation/) mentioned on the GStreamer mailing list and wondered if libOIL could use a CUDA back-end to emit code that runs on the GPU. Feel free to discuss it!

    I agree with michail, it would be very helpful if u can post more examples, but thanks a lot for your work till now.

    Well, these getting started tutorials are very nice. I would like to see more advanced how-tos for cuda (working with textures,optimization, efficient working with different memory(shared, global, e.t.c), thread sync, cublas). Unfortunately, I guess would know all this by the time you would write these tutorials 🙂

    BTW: The reason why cuda diagnostic says 65536 of constant without MP devision is because all these constants are available for all MPs. They are as fast as registers.
