In this course we will help you getting started on the VSC clusters, Austria's most powerful supercomputers. We'll focus on using the VSC clusters and especially their queuing system efficiently.
With running and developing software on a supercomputer there are many similarities and fewer but crucial differences compared to your desktop PC. Focusing on hands-on teaching throughout the course, you will immediately try out what you've heard and adapt it to your own needs.
This course is from beginners level (the first steps on a supercomputer) to intermediate level (some experience on VSC or an other compute cluster) and equally relevant to those who will merely be running existing software as to those who will develop scientific codes (however, without actually teaching supercomputer programming – if you would like to learn parallel programming, please refer to our MPI, OpenMP, or CUDA courses).
