Welcome to this ENCCS SYCL workshop
SYCL is a C++ abstraction layer for programming heterogeneous hardware with a single-source approach. SYCL is high-level, cross-platform, and extends standard ISO C++17. You will learn to:
- Use the hipSYCL compiler to generate executables for multiple hardware targets.
- Write hardware-agnostic code to express parallelism using the queue, command group, and kernel abstractions.
- Use buffer and accessors to handle memory across devices.
- Evaluate drawbacks and advantages of unified shared memory.
