Welcome to the course on CUDA Programming – From Zero to Hero!

Unlock the immense power of parallel computing with our comprehensive CUDA Programming course, designed to take you from absolute beginner to a proficient CUDA developer. Whether you’re a software engineer, data scientist, or enthusiast looking to harness the potential of GPU acceleration, this course is your gateway to mastering the CUDA programming paradigm. In this course, we will learn about GPU Programming and write programs in CUDA in C++. CUDA is an amazing framework developed by NVidia where you can code programs that can run on GPUs. By exploiting data level parallelism techniques, one can solve complex computational tasks and problems in far lesser time compared to the serial counterparts. Serial Programming involves usage of only a single processor core where all the computation happens, but in today’s world with the advent of multi-core architectures, parallel programming is the need of the hour. To add to that, Nvidia offers its wide range of GPUs where you can use this framework to run your algorithms in the GPU in parallel. CUDA also enables you to learn how to code faster for people who have some exposure on serial programming languages like C, C++ and Java. This course would offer you to write programs in C++ utilizing the CUDA framework.

This course will also touch base on the basics of parallel programming and why we do it in the first place. It also reflects on when parallelism can be exploited and what are threads to start your journey! I have tried to build the course as self-contained as possible so that students can find a one-stop solution to becoming a CUDA Programmer from the absolute basics.

If you do not have a Nvidia GPU, don’t worry as in this course, I will show you a way by which you can run CUDA Programs on any machine! Only thing required is an internet connection, that’s it!

By the end of this course, you’ll not only be proficient in CUDA programming but also have the confidence to tackle complex parallel computing challenges. Join us on this journey, and let’s elevate your GPU programming skills from zero to hero!


  • Willingness to Learn
