Event description

Description

HPC Carpentry is a new workshop in the beta development phase for inclusion in The Carpentries. In is designed to teach how to interact with a compute cluster. The first lesson, Intro to HPC, is a general introduction to the bash command line and submitting jobs on a typical HPC cluster. The second lesson in this workshop focuses on creating parallel programs that execute across one or more compute nodes. Each lesson takes roughly a full day.

Workshops are intended to be fully interactive and taught in the "Software Carpentry" format: instruction is done live, with learners coding along with workshop instructors. Frequent excercises and test problems have been added to ensure students have a chance to try things on their own. No prior computing experience is required or expected.

Who: The workshop is aimed at graduate students and other researchers who is looking for a hands-on introduction to working with high performance / cluster computing systems. No previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop is needed.
