This workshop is an introduction to using high-performance computing systems effectively. We obviously can't cover every case or give an exhaustive course on parallel programming in just two days of teaching time. Instead, this workshop is intended to give students a good introduction and overview of the tools available and how to use them effectively.
By the end of this workshop, students will know how to:
- Connect to remote HPC systems and transfer data
- Use a scheduler to work on a shared system
- Use software modules to access different HPC software
- Work effectively on a remote shared resource
