HPC Carpentry Course

EPCC has been working with the Carpentries community to extend the successful model of Carpentry training for Software and Data skills to encompass High Performance Computing.

This course introduces accessing remote advanced computing facilities via the command line and High Performance Computing (HPC). After completing this course, participants will: 

  • Understand motivations for using HPC in research 
  • Understand how HPC systems are put together to achieve performance and how they differ from desktops/laptops 
  • Know how to connect to remote HPC systems and transfer data 
  • Be able to use the Bash command line on remote systems 
  • Know how to use a scheduler to work on a shared system 
  • Be able to use software modules to access different HPC software 
  • Be able to work effectively on a remote shared resource 

Like all Carpentry courses, the training takes a hands-on practical approach with a high ratio of instructors to students.
