NVIDIA Launches CUDA Coding Challenge to Find India’s Top Parallel Programming Students

NVIDIA is launching its inaugural CUDA® Coding Challenge, an India-wide contest to seek out the country’s most talented and innovative CUDA programmers.

CUDA is NVIDIA’s parallel computing platform and programming model that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the GPU.

By giving burgeoning programmers the opportunity to test and hone their CUDA programming skills, NVIDIA hopes to prepare scores of new developers to help tackle tomorrow’s most difficult computational challenges by harnessing the power of GPU-accelerated computing.
