HPC Carpentry will take place on 25th and 26th July 2018 at the University of Leeds.
This course is aimed at researchers who have little or no experience of using high performance or high throughput computing but are interested to learn how it could help their research, how they could use it and how it provides additional performance. You need to have previous experience working with the Unix Shell. For a brief introduction to bash, you can refer to the Software Carpentry material available online. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
After completing this course, participants will:
* Understand motivations for using HPC in research
* Understand how HPC systems are put together to achieve performance and how they differ from desktops/laptops
* Know how to connect to remote HPC systems and transfer data
* Know how to use a scheduler to work on a shared system
* Be able to use software modules to access different HPC software
* Be able to work effectively on a remote shared resource
