In this video from ISC 2015, Scott Apeland from Intel discusses the importance of code modernization.
Modernizing your code on Intel architecture can help you achieve breakthrough performance for highly parallel applications. And, you won’t have to recode your entire problem, or master new tools and programming models.”
At the conference, the company also announced the new Intel Modern Code Developer Community.
Building on the success of the Intel Parallel Computing Centers, Intel is announcing the Intel Modern Code Developer Community to help HPC developers to code for maximum performance on current and future hardware. Targeting over 400,000 HPC-focused developers and partners, the program brings tools, training, knowledge and support to developers worldwide by offering access to a network of elite experts in parallelism and HPC. The broader developer community can now gain the skills needed to unlock the full potential of Intel hardware and enable the next decade of discovery.
To kick off this community program, the Intel Modern Code Challenge 2015 will be held in partnership with CERN and others where HPC developers can make a difference, learn valuable skills, and contribute to a social cause. Prizes include a scholarship, potential internship at CERN, trip to visit CERN in Switzerland in 2016, and a trip to the annual SC conference.
