Previous to the event
A group of interns from different fields in computer science at ORNL decided to share our experiences with a topic we consider we are passionate to work with. Kirsten, Xequing, Kuldeep, Ben and myself shared a couple of lunch to organize the event and thanks to the help of Sherry, the event was published at OLCF website. We set the event date to July 13.
During the event
Getting started with basic Linux commands
I started by giving an overview of the basic rules in GNU/Linux and highlighting the importance of this Operating System in supercomputers around the world and in ORNL.I tried to focus the Linux commands to support daily operations in the world of newbies in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. This workshop lasted an hour and a half, switching from a little lecturing and hands-on of around 40 essential commands.Git basic commands
First look into Parallel Computing
Kirsten Hess talked about Parallel computing concepts during her first hour and then after the break, she led a hands-on workshop using OpenMP for Unix flavours computers.Interact with Python for the first time
Registration and attendances
Thanks to Sheila and Sherry to support the day of the event with the registration of the attendees and the interns who were there the whole day. Glad to see women that want to learn more about HPC as well as the interns who did interesting questions.
Winners of the trivia
I dared to ask attendances during my talk questions related to GNU/Linux in supercomputers and thanks to ORISE, the ORNL Federal Credit Union we were able to prize the participants. Janice Greenwood also donated a Red Hat (beige sport hat) for our winners. Here are some of them during my workshop:
