Algorithmia at the iOS Hackathon
Algorithmia was proud to participate in the iOS Hackathon (part of the OpenDay) organized by Globant LLC, one of the biggest outsourcing companies in the South Cone.
During the hackathon, we developed a custom iPad application that leverages the Video Card of the device to render the Julia-Fatou and Mandelbrot sets. The following image depicts the Demo running on Apple’s iPad Simulator:
The implementation was performed using OpenGL ES Frament Shaders to leverage the iPad’s GPU as a highly parallel coprocessor, capable of evaluating the fractals at the same time for every pixel displayed on the device’s screen.
After developing our Demo, we were invited to explain the concept and technologies used to the Audience using an actual iPad device.
You can see some pictures taken at the Event below.
We thank Globant for the opportunity to present our Demo as part of their conference.
