This tutorial (hands-on short course) introduces the use of Containers using the Charliecloud software suite. This course will provide participants with background and hands-on experience to use basic Charliecloud containers for HPC applications. We will discuss what containers are, why they matter for HPC, and how they work. We’ll give an overview of Charliecloud, the unprivileged container solution from Los Alamos National Laboratory's HPC Division. Participants will build toy containers and real HPC applications, and then run them in parallel on a cluster. This will be a highly interactive workshop with lots of Q&A. This tutorial is presented by the Charliecloud support staff and hosted on HPRC Resources with HPRC staff also present to answer questions.
