This one-hour webinar provides a detailed review of the Vulkan Validation Layers, how they are architected, how you use them, and why they are so important. The main presentation is followed by a Q&A session. The presentation and Q&A will be conducted in English.
Khronos Group is at SIGGRAPH this week. If you are going be sure to bookmark our SIGGRAPH event page containing our complete list of BOFs and Khronos related sessions. We'll have free t-shirts, a Chapters BOF on Tuesday, several Khronos Tech BOFs on Wednesday as well as our famous After Party BOF Blitz where you can meet, ask questions and eat with some of the folks behind the Khronos technologies. Our Wednesday line-up includes:
- OpenVX & OpenCL @ 10am
- OpenCL, SYCL, & SPIR-V @ 11:00am
- WebGL & glTF @ 1:00pm
- Vulkan, OpenGL, & OpenGL ES @ 2:30pm
- and the Khronos After Party @ 6:00pm
The schedules for the all-day Khronos BOF Blitz and famous BOF Blitz After Party are now online. Featuring four BOFs on Wednesday July 27th, and a 5th BOF on Tuesday July 26th for Khronos Chapters. We've also compiled a list of all the SIGGRAPH sessions, courses, workshops and BOFs that contain Khronos Technology. Unsurprisingly there is a ton of Vulkan stuff going on this year. Checkout the event page today. Hope to see lots of you in Anaheim during SIGGRAPH!
Learn more about this performance and power-optimized computer vision processing API directly from Khronos, the people who created it. In this 1-hour session, we will talk about the OpenVX API and will answer your questions.
If you were not in Cambridge England on May 26th and missed the "Moving to Vulkan" DevDay sponsored by ARM, you can now view the slides online. We will be posting video of the speakers within the next few days.
Khronos sponsored a day long course covering both the function-based API and the graph API that enable OpenVX developers to efficiently run computer vision algorithms on heterogeneous computing architectures. One section explains the tutorial exercises with a VirtualBox VM, which can be downloaded from the tutorial on Github. The Embedded Vision Summit schedule is located here, the tutorial is on Github and the associated videos from the day long tutorial are available on Youtube.
Google will be holding their annual developer festival with hands-on learning, technical talks, and a chance to hear more about Google’s latest developer products May 18-20 in Mountain View California. If you are going, be sure not to miss Hai Nguyen's talk on 'Make shinier, faster mobile games with Vulkan'.
YetiWare will be talking OpenCL at their booth at OCE Discovery in Toronto this week. OCE Discovery is Canada's leading innovation-to-commercialization conference showcasing leading-edge technologies, best practices and research in Ontario Canada.
Dominic Witczak from AMD is holding a meetup in Poland on May 7th to cover the most common mistakes developers make when using Vulkan. you may read more about this event in Polish on the event page and on Facebook. The event is listed on the Khronos website in english.
Khronos is proud to be a sponsor of the Embedded Vision Summit on May 2-4 2016 in Santa Clara, CA. The Khronos OpenVX working group will be running an in-depth OpenVX tutorial at this highly focused event. The OpenVX workshop is being held on the final day of the Embedded Vision Summit, and includes tutorials on the OpenVX architecture, a hands-on lab to try out real-world examples of OpenVX acceleration, and tips to deploy OpenVX in your own applications and products.
Tomasz Bednarz will be giving a 30-minute talk about Vulkan, as an API that connects across scales. The session is about various hacks in code (code is art), and art. Starting with 8-bit computers, talk about graphics, art installations, shaders and using shaders to paint the world in VR, and finishing off with large visualisation systems, and how we do graphics and compute using massive systems.
Both AMD and Khronos Group now have their GDC related presentations online. You will find the AMD list of presentation on their new GPU Open website. Khronos has their presentations and videos listed on their event page archive.
