Ontario HPC Summer School 2012 (Central ON: Toronto)

For the last three years, the coming of summer has meant one thing — the Ontario HPC Summer School. The three Ontario HPC Consortia have worked together to teach a week-long intensive “boot camp” introducing HPC and parallel computing to an audience including attendees from academia, government labs, and industry. This year, to better reach our Ontario-wide target audience, multiple sections are being taught; one was taught in early June in London  (Summer School West), one in late July in Ottawa (Summer School East), and one in Toronto is just winding up today.

Students learned about working at the shell, the basics of HPC, OpenMP, MPI or CUDA, parallel debugging, and the current state of HPC best practices.

It was a tremendous experience, and we look forward to doing something similar next year!
