newbie Getting started...

I’m totally new to this whole CUDA thing, however I find it really interesting and I’d love to make the simplest program, any suggestions?? Where can I get some really simple code (some type of For Dummies)that will help me understand a little bit about CUDA, I’d really appreciate it!!
Download the SDK and look at all the examples. IIRC, the reduction example is a good place to start but there may be simpler ones.

I would suggest the matrix multiplication program in the SDK. That is what I used just to start. Then I would move to other programs that demonstrated the technique that I needed.


I have a page that shows how to get started using CUDA:…rted-with-cuda/

I also have a page with links to some CUDA tutorials:

Thank you guys! I’m new too and this helped me move towards the right direction!
