  • Learn about GPU architecture, including the runtime environment, threads, and memory
  • Build and deploy GPU applications and libraries—and port existing applications
  • Use debugging and profiling tools and techniques
  • Write GPU programs for clusters and the cloud
  • Design programs that will take advantage of future enhancements to GPU technology—including the trend of putting CPU and GPU cores on a single chip
