Derek Gerstmann, University of Western Australia and Justin Hensley, AMD presented the course "OpenCL by Example" at SIGGRAPH ASIA 2010. All course notes and supplementary materials are now available online for download. The course presenters are experts on general-purpose GPU computation and advanced rendering from academia and industry, and have presented papers and tutorials on the topic at SIGGRAPH, Graphics Hardware, Supercomputing, and elsewhere. This course demonstrates how to combine traditional rendering APIs with advanced parallel computation using OpenCL (Open Computing Language), a cross-platform API for programming parallel systems such as GPUs.
