Course Description

Learn the fundamentals of parallel computing with the GPU and the CUDA programming environment! In this class, you'll learn about parallel programming by coding a series of image processing algorithms, such as you might find in Photoshop or Instagram. You'll be able to program and run your assignments on high-end GPUs, even if you don't own one yourself. **Why It’s Important to Think Parallel** [Third Pillar of Science][1] Learn how scientific discovery can be accelerated by combining theory and experimentation with computing to fight cancer, prevent heart attacks, and spur new advances in robotic surgery.

Quite an advanced course, going in depth with CUDA with a focus on optimisation. The assignments were challenging but fun.

This course was prepared like any other course but at the same as the competition -- I like the challenge factor very much. The Staff did much better job that the counterpart course at Coursera, here you can enjoy the content. There were some problems, one of them -- lack of official scores, so you never knew how good your program really is, unless you go sift through the forum. I mark this course as hard, because achieving top scores was hard, other than that, I would say the level was medium.
