Intel unveiled today a global training curriculum for software developers to speed and expand software development for multi-core processors.
The Intel Software Training Program offers classroom courses and hands-on lab work to better train software developers in multi-threaded application design. Training is delivered by Intel-approved instructors and designed in a way to quickly reach worldwide developers with NIIT, an information technology training company, and other authorized providers.
As the industry transitions from single-core processors to ones that have multiple cores and threads per processor, software developers need to hone their skills to create applications that take advantage of multi-core processors that can execute multiple instructions simultaneously.
The Intel Software Training Program includes sessions related to software parallelism, multithreaded programming and platform optimization.
The program is being deployed in the United States through Element K, a subsidiary of NIIT. Other authorized providers around the world include Academy IT and LANIT in Russia, Aribil and NETRON in Turkey, NIIT Ltd. in India, QA-IQ in the United Kingdom, Samsung SDS in Korea, Training Choice in Australia and Singapore, and TRIA IT?training GmbH in Germany.
