Two weeks left!

Howdy Challengers!

T-minus 2 weeks and counting... hope your projects are going great!

Reminder - if you're on-track to submit your project for judging by the deadline, we'd like to extend an invitation to an exclusive Hangout where you'll become among the first to know the details about upcoming OpenPOWER servers with NVIDIA's NVLink technology connecting the POWER8 processor to NVIDIA Tesla P100 ('Pascal') GPUs.  The high-speed NVLink from CPU:GPU removes the PCI-E bottleneck you're used to, and OpenPOWER Developers will be the first to tap into this super fat data path!   Sign up here for your invite!

Reach out for support in our Slack channel and also sign-up for 1-1 Office Hours with an expert if you need a little extra help or a brainstorming session.

We can't wait to review your projects and meet the Winners at SC16!

Educational Hangout replays are available:

  • Developer Challenge Kick-off & Orientation replay
  • Using AccDNN to accelerate neural networks replay
  • Using NVIDIA GPUs replay
  • Using Xilinx SDAccel replay
  • Using the IBM XL Compilers to performance tune and optimize for The Open Road Test replay

-- The OpenPOWER Developer Challenge Team


We're here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum or email and we'll respond as soon as we can.
