This course is aimed at reducing your struggle in getting started with computational projects, and make you a more efficient computational scientist. Topics include well-established best practices for developing software as it applies to scientific computations, common numerical techniques and packages, and aspects of high performance computing. While we will introduce the C++ language, in one language or another, students should already have some programming experience. Despite the title, this course is suitable for many physical scientists (chemists, astronomers, ...). Location: SciNet Teaching Room MaRS 1140

Monthly user meeting at SciNet with pizza, a techtalk and user discussion. "The Grammar and Tools of Data Visualization in the Era of Big Data",by Mubdi Rahman, Ph.D (Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics, University of Toronto).Data visualization has become a critical tool for scientists in exploratory science, particularly in the light ever-growing datasets with greater complexity.Despite this, the basics of visualization are often misunderstood and we limit ourselves to classical formats and tools that end up being inefficient and misleading.In this talk, I'll present some of the basic grammar of how to build visualizations for exploratory science, and modern tools that enable thework.
