WestGrid Legacy Systems Defunding Update

“Defunded” means that the system is no longer funded, operated or maintained as part of Compute Canada’s national cyberinfrastructure platform, which is funded through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) Major Science Initiatives (MSI) program. Local institutions may choose to keep a system running, which may result in usage limited to a certain group of users (e.g. only those from the local institution).

HPC Carpentry @ University of Alberta

HPC Carpentry is a new two-day workshop designed to teach how to interact with a compute cluster. The first lesson, Intro to HPC, is a general introduction to the bash command line and submitting jobs on a typical HPC cluster. The second lesson in this workshop focuses on creating parallel programs that execute across one or more compute nodes. Each lesson runs from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm each day.
