Envious of all the cool FPGA-accelerated applications showing up on the Amazon AWS EC2 F1 instance like the Edico Genome DRAGEN Genome Pipeline that set a Guinness World Record last week, the DeePhi ASR (Automatic speech Recognition) Neural Network announced yesterday, Ryft’s cloud-based search and analysis tools, or NGCodec’s RealityCodec video encoder?
Well, you can shake off that green monster by signing up for the free, live, half-day Amazon AWS EC2 F1 instance and SDAccel dev lab being held at SC17 in Denver on the morning of November 15 at The Studio Loft in the Denver Performing Arts Complex (1400 Curtis Street), just across the street from the Denver Convention Center where SC17 is being held. Xilinx is hosting the lab and technology experts from Xilinx, Amazon Web Services, Ryft, and NGCodec will be available onsite.
Here’s the half-day agenda:
8:00 AM Doors open, Registration, and Continental Breakfast
9:00 AM Welcome, Technology Discussion, F1 Developer Use Cases and Demos
9:35 AM Break
9:45 AM Hands-on Training Begins
12:00 PM Developer Lab Concludes
A special guest speaker from Amazon Web Services is also on the agenda.
Lab instruction time includes:
Step-by-step instructions to connect to an F1 instance
Interactive walkthrough of the SDAccel Development Environment
Highlights of SDAccel IDE features: compile, debug, profile
Instruction for how to develop a sample framework acceleration app
Seats are necessarily limited for a lab like this, so you might want to get your request in immediately. Where? Here.
