Intro to High Performance Computing class

October 24, 2019 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Polya Hall

ONLY Stanford Staff, Faculty and Students are eligible

SRCC and Stanford Libraries will be teaching an introduction to HPC course on October 24th.  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 a few hours 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:

 Use the UNIX command line to operate a computer,connect to a cluster, and write simple shell scripts.
 Submit and manage jobs on a cluster using a scheduler, transfer files, and use software through environment modules.

Please note:  this class is for people who are beginners to HPC and SLURM. We will not be going into a deep dive on SLURM or sbatch directives. The class is not for people who already have HPC/SLURM experience. Some Linux command line experience with navigating the filesystem (ls, and cd commands) and editing files (nano) is helpful but not necessary
