    OpenCL Books / tutorials

    Are there any openCL books in the pipeline

    What about some tutorials
    (have read the usual ones like: from here, nvidia dev, siggraph presentations).

    Cheers,

    I beleive that a OpenCL book project is being considered and also a number of white papers are hopeful.

    Re: OpenCL Books / tutorials

    I find it interesting that the number of views on this forum is about 100 times that of the number of replies for almost every thread. OpenCL has quite a lot of interest, there are lots of people trying to find out more. I also find it interesting that one of the few exceptions was this thread (which is about finding out more), where the ratio is closer to 1000:1 (before I posted). If it wasn't for all the large companies backing it I would be worried that OpenCL will fall victim to the chicken and the egg problem, of there being no documentation or tutorials because people are finding it hard to learn.

    Thank you for your interest in OpenCL. The working group agrees 100% that good documentation, examples, man pages and other developer resources are vitally important.

    The OpenCL working group is working to produce these materials ASAP - we will be linking to Khronos/third party developer resources from an OpenCL Ecosystem web page on Khronos.org very shortly.

    We will post a link here as soon as it is available - and we welcome any feedback - especially if anything you consider important is missing.

    While we wait for a "real" book, this can be a GOOD source of information.

    Hi Guys,

    I am also a newbie for OpenCL.I just gone through this given article and
    i think its good information for OpenCL basics.
    You can just go through sample also from apple developer site.If you are familiar with
    OpenGL ES 2.0,then it is very easy to understand,because calls are very much similiar.
    I have a little knowledge of CUDA also,but end of the day i am feeling OPenCL APIs are
    more comfortable in comapre to Cuda.

    Regards,
    Parmar.
