Description of the Program
SDSC supports the training of its user community, including students,
in all aspects of High-performance computing (HPC). The goal of the
training is to prepare new HPC users to run jobs on HPC systems. For
more advanced training, please see our webinars
and workshops which are targeted to more experienced users.
SDSC supports training of its user community, including students, collaborators, staff, in all aspects of High-performance computing (HPC). We have planned a series of training sessions, to be held on Fridays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm in the SDSC SynCenter (or the Auditorium, if needed) that will introduce participants to a variety of HPC topics and skill development activities, including:
Basic Linux and using Jupyter Notebooks.
HPC architectures, software, and admin skills.
Parallel programming basics, including GPU/CUDA, OpenMP and MPI using Python, C, Fortran, and possibly other languages.
Performance characterization of the cluster, numerical methods, and other applications.
Visualization and analysis of big data sets.
Machine learning fundamentals.
Work as a team to develop and work on the items above.
How the Training Sessions Work
Participants will be given accounts on Comet, the SDSC Supercomputer, and be given the opportunity to complete several basic assignments. Participants who successfully complete the HPC Training program will receive an SDSC Certificate of Completion in HPC Training. Students who complete the course will also be eligible to receive [UCSD Co-Curricular Credit]() for their efforts. There is no grade in the course. To sucessfully complete the course, participants must attendi most of the sessions and complete approximately 80% of the work. Participants are encouraged to work as teams, and can work on the assignments past the last date of training sessions with the approval of the instructor.
