qwikLABS: The almond of tech learning

One of the things we have in our office consistently, 100% of the time, is snack food. Some of it is healthy (dried mangos) and some of it is a little on the junkfood side (even though the popcorn promises it’s a good source of vitamins).

Generic clip-art lady with donuts – you can find anything on the internet…

Every day we sample a little of this and a little of that. We have our favorites that we keep stocked. We try new things and decide whether or not a second appearance is deserved.

The office favorite? Almonds. What do we like about them? They’re nourishing. Flavorful. Satisfying. They come in different flavors, and are delicious in (almost!) any iteration. Bottom line? Almonds are snackable, and good for you.

So what is the point, other than making everyone feel hungry? qwikLABS, with our hands-on lab approach to training, is the almond of learning new technology. Seriously, learning new technologies like AWS can result in massive career opportunities. And qwikLABS, with our snackable, good-for-you labs, should be in your browser’s recent history (if you’re not taking one right now).

How GPU Technology Conferences are Part of a Vast Conspiracy

… to make the impossible possible with GPU technologies! 

Last day of the GPU Tech Conference, be sure to take advantage of self-paced labs with qwikLABS. Get your lab on – starting at 9:30 (and if you’re not there, check out our online labs). 

Did you partake of yesterday’s baked-to-perfection cookies? Or are you just there for the robots?

Seriously looks like a great party, but even more seriously, take things into your own hands and get into NVIDIA technology, fast. Check out these live, hands-on labs and learn to program GPUs with C++, or Python, or Fortran, or MATLAB – any place, your pace. Check out labs on OpenACC and Deep Learning too (Intro to Deep Learning is free!).

So what flavor doughnut did you get?

Are you at the GPU Technology Conference? We promised pics – read on to see if you made it into any of the shots! 

Check the schedule for bootcamps and self-paced labs. You’ll find qwikLABS there! Even if you didn’t make it to the conference, check out the NVIDIA lab catalog, and try our newest NVIDIA Quest, Introduction to Deep Learning.

What’s a Quest, you might ask? And why should I care? Each Quest consists of a collection  of labs that focus on a specific area of GPU computing and practical use cases. At the end of a Quest, you get two things:

  • Advanced knowledge of that specific area of GPU computing
  • A shareable badge to show what you accomplished (looks great on your resume, social media profiles, and more!)

Why should I take the Deep Learning Quest? Deep learning is helping to solve big data problems such as computer vision (self-driving cars!), speech recognition, and language processing. NVIDIA provides high-performance tools and libraries to power these applications, and qwikLABS puts practical training, curated by experts, into your hands. Earn your Deep Learning Badge today!

As promised, here are a few snapshots of the conference. Have you checked out the self-paced labs yet?
