PDC Cafe

Every month PDC welcomes users to an informal "PDC Cafe” - the first Cafe will be on Tuesday Sept 10, 10-12:00. You can drop by, meet application experts and other HPC staff, discuss problems and get useful advice, as well as enjoying coffee and "fika".

Time: Tue 2019-09-10 10.00 - 12.00

Location: SeRC room, 5th floor, Teknikringen 14, KTH

Contact:

We meet in the "SeRC room", on 5th floor in Teknikringen 14 right in the middle of KTH main campus. If there's anything that you think could be improved either in your own scripts, workflows or codes, or in the services that PDC provides, please drop by and discuss it with us, we would love to help! This is the place to get stuff done, so bring a laptop.

Suggestions for issues you can discuss:

  • How to improve your run scripts
  • Help with scripting
  • Help with programming and software management
  • Help with project organization and data management
  • Help with Linux stuff
  • How to improve the performance of your calculations
  • “Papercuts”: things that annoy you and how we can fix that
  • How to improve services
  • Project ideas
  • Learn about cool services that you may not know yet

Sometimes, there may be a short presentation on some topic, but you can still ask questions of the other staff before, during, and after that.

If you would like to discuss a problem that you think might be somewhat more involved and/or specialised (e.g. advanced programming issues or questions on specific codes which require domain expertise) please get in touch before the event (by sending an email to kthw@kth.se ) so that we can prepare.
