CDT is designed for developers wishing to leverage the innovative Intel many- and multi-core products or sharpen their parallel programming skills, and allow the attendees to make informed decisions regarding the suitability of the Intel Xeon family products for their workloads.

“As developers look to quickly and efficiently harness the power of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, Colfax is excited to announce a complete development solution including wide range of training programs for both novices and experts, complemented by professional workstations,” said Gautam Shah, CEO and President of Colfax International. “We have worked with Intel’s Xeon Phi team for close to two years, acquiring significant expertise and are therefore uniquely qualified and positioned to provide Intel Xeon Phi training and systems for highly parallel computing workloads.”
