Prerequisite Courses

Short online courses are available FREE to registered on-site participants to help these students meet the prerequisites for Petascale Programming Environments and Tools and Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Many-core Processors.

Each prerequisite course includes eight 45-minute recorded lectures; each week students will be expected to watch four video lectures on their own schedule and must complete two short programming assignments.
