Intro to Scientific Computing 7-9 June 2021 (FGCI kickstart)
June 2021 / Intro to Scientific Computing (FGCI HPC kickstart)
Part of Scientific Computing in Practice lecture series at Aalto University.
Audience: Everyone doing computational work, special focus for summer workers who are just starting.
About the course: Summer Kickstart is a three day courses for researchers to get started with the available computational resources at Aalto, FGCI (Finnish Grid and Cloud Infrastructure, basically HPC, high-performance computing, at universities) and CSC (the Finnish national computing center). On the day one we start with the basic HPC intro, and some basic intro to Linux command line and Git version control, for those who are not yet familiar with these tools.
On days two and three we cover one by one steps on how to get started on the local computational clusters: learning by doing with lots of examples and hands-on exercises.
By the end of the course you get the hints, ready solutions and copy/paste examples on how to find, run and monitor your applications, and manage your data. In addition to how to optimize your workflow in terms of filesystem traffic, memory usage etc.
The course is done in collaboration with CSC, University of Helsinki, Tampere University. Please read description and prerequisites here: https://scicomp.aalto.fi/training/scip/summer-kickstart/
