Do you use supercomputers in your research work? Are you curious about making your computing faster and more efficient? Join us for TTT4HPC: four self-contained episodes on tools and techniques for supercomputing. It is a great chance to enhance your computational skills. What you will learn is also used a lot in industry and research environments whenever large-scale computations are needed.

The course happens online. Mornings (2h) lectures via TwitchTV. Afternoons (1.5h) hands-on exercises on Zoom with our HPC experts.
Episodes are self-contained, you can join only for the episodes that are useful for your research.

Episode 1 - 16/04/2024 - HPC Resources: RAM, CPUs/GPUs, I/O

Focus on HPC computational resources, starting with understanding and managing memory, CPUs, and GPUs, monitoring computational processes and I/O, utilizing local disks and ramdisks, and extending into benchmarking and selecting job parameters.

Episode 2 - 23/04/2024 - Day-to-day working on clusters

Focus on software development on HPC, syncing data, interactive work with HPC, VScode

Episode 3 - 07/05/2024 - Containers on clusters

Focus on containers with Apptainer/Singularity, how to build containers for HPC, how to work with the filesystem and other practical examples with containers

Episode 4 - 14/05/2024 - Parallelization and workflows

Content: focus on parallelization with HPC, efficient parameter sweeps, workflow automation, hyperscaling pitfalls
