There was an event running by OLCF for three days (June 26-28) focused on new people to HPC or those who need a refresher on basic HPC skills. Hands-on workshops were included and it was open to everybody around the world.
My impressions of the first day:
It started with an overview of the structure of Summit and Titan, we were able to login into Titan and practice UNIX commands as well as learn more trick using VI as Linux editor.
After the break, we review the C and Fortran programming basics. An awesome talk Mister Messer. Thanks to Ruth, a smart high school intern who shared with me a productive day!Even better the next day!
I have the honour to meet John Levesque, the director of CRAY. He did a great talk because he witnessed the born of supercomputers and the parallelism concepts. We learned more about Git, OpenMP and I was inspired to by the MPI talk 🙂Last day of the event
NVIDIA was the star of the day, we learned about CUDA, OpenACC and profilers during the workshop. We had hands-on experience and I was able to achieve most of the exercises under the guidance and patience of Steve Abbott. Thank you OLCF for organizing this amazing event!
