Funny quotes from Twitter - Part 1

IGK 2015 Conference
I will be there, giving a lecture "On the other side of graphics API. How does graphics driver and chip look like?" (It will be in Polish. Actual title: "Po drugiej stronie API graficznego. Czyli jak wygląda sterownik i układ graficzny?")
Abstract: A programmer developing games or other applications that utilize GPU uses one of API-s for 3D graphics (e.g. DirectX, OpenGL) or GPGPU (e.g. OpenCL). With examples based on the Intel products, the lecture shows what is on the other side of that API: characteristics and components of graphics driver (especially shader compiler), architecture of a GPU and its instruction set.
