Hackathon mentors are crucial for the success of attendees. As a mentor, you’ll help other developers port their applications to GPUs for the first time, transition to multi-GPU programming, or tune applications to achieve optimal performance. This usually involves some amount of planning before the event with your designated developer team in addition to hands-on development during the hackathon.
Serving as a mentor is a rewarding experience. While helping other developers improve their skills, you will have access to compute cycles on multi-GPU clusters. Additionally, hackathons are great for building your professional network, establishing your voice in the HPC community, and keeping up with the rapidly changing high performance computing environment.
By signing up for the mentor list, we will reach out to you for each planned event. If you are available to serve as a mentor, we aim to pair you with developer teams based on your specific programming skills and knowledge. We partner with sponsors that value your time and skills and enable us to cover your travel costs for each event you serve at.
