Khronos Releases WebCL 1.0 SpecificationThe Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the WebCL 1.0 specification. Developed in close cooperation with the Web community, WebCL extends the capabilities of HTML5 browsers by enabling developers to offload computationally intensive processing to available computational resources such as multicore CPUs and GPUs. WebCL defines JavaScript bindings to OpenCL APIs that enable Web applications to compile OpenCL C kernels and manage their parallel execution. Like WebGL, WebCL is expected to enable a rich ecosystem of JavaScript middleware that provides access to accelerated functionality to a wide diversity of Web developers. Please join us March 20th for our WebCL DevU at GDC.

If you happen to be an educator going to SIGGRAPH Asia this year, then you are in for a treat. The Khronos Group announces their first-ever KITE event geared towards educators. While our DevU events in the past have been successful at helping developers get familiar with our APIs, at this years DevU for Educators, the goal will be to provide you with the insight and understanding you need in order to include Khronos technologies in your teaching curriculum. Including this cutting-edge material in your classes will give your graduating students an edge – the same skills and proficiencies the industry's recruiters are looking for in new engineers. All the details are available on the Khronos event page.
