It is once again time for a KPLUG meeting. And this time it really will be at:

UCSD Extension

Mission Valley

404 Camino Del Rio South Suite 102

San Diego, CA 92108

For real this time! Sorry again to those who ended up at the wrong address last time because I didn't update the address on meetup.

Joel Rodriquez will give a talk about CUDA basics and his data acquisition pci card (serrano). CUDA stands for Compute Unified Device Architecture. It is a ``C like'' computer language developed by Nvidia to use the massive number of processors in a single GPU (as much as 1536 CUDA cores in a GeForce GTX 680) for generic parallel computing.

This time we have a special treat: a HUGE raffle! One of our members cleaned out his closet and donated a ton of stuff. Usually we have books donated by O'Reilly to raffle off (with the understanding that we are expected to post honest reviews of the books to Amazon and other places) but this month we will be raffling off books, hardware, software, etc. We are still working out just how we are going to raffle off such a large amount of material. We may hold some of it over for the next meeting.

How the raffle works: You pay a dollar per ticket/chance to win. You put half the ticket in the bucket and keep the other half. We draw a ticket and announce the number and if it is yours you come up and draw the next ticket then you get your pick of whatever is up for raffle.

Here's the list of what we've got this time:
