This is an 3-hour course centred on how to use the systems that PDC provides. It is a good starting point for people who want to get started with high performance computing (HPC) using PDC's clusters.

The course will focus on basic and advanced methods for using PDC's systems. It will cover some background, what clusters are available, applying for PDC resources, how to login to PDC, running software on different nodes, storing data on different file systems, compiling code, and more.

Who is it for?

This afternoon course is for new and prospective users of PDC's resources. No previous experience with using HPC resources is needed.
