C++ AMP: Daniel Moth - Overview

· ·
Free Resource

C++ AMP (Accelerated Massive Parallelism) is a small set of open specification language extensions (two of them) and a single library (amp.h) that makes general purpose GPU programming (aka GPGPU) a first class, seamless experience in modern C++.

Here, we meet the legendary Daniel Moth. Daniel's actually been on C9 a few times and his technical screencasts are among the very best that have been produced for C9 (please make more, Daniel!!). Daniel is the C++ AMP program manager (PM).

So, tell us what C++ AMP is and why it matters, Daniel. Give us some context and history. What's going on here? What's next?

Tune in and meet the people behind the restrict(ion)s, kernels, etc. It's GPGPU time on C9. Enjoy.
