This workshop is designed to introduce skills required to perform computational research in the life sciences. Participants will learn and practice commands in a Linux terminal, the text editor VIM, and the basics of shell scripting.
This workshop is designed to introduce skills required to perform computational research in the life sciences. First, an overview of different compute and storage resources are described, with a focus on those available at TACC.
August 17 - 21, 2015, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST -- From a user perspective, supercomputers are more complicated to program and handle than an ordinary desktop workstation. This may lead to parallel programs that do not necessarily satisfy the performance expectations of the users. Such unexpected performance results can have many reasons. Basic knowledge on performance modeling, prediction and verification, as taught in this summer school, is needed by users to formulate and verify their performance expectation.
