Presentation materials and software ready to use on Delta will be provided. All sessions will be recorded and made available for later viewing by registrants on NCSA's HPC-Moodle

COMPLECS: Intermediate Linux and Shell Scripting 01/18/24 - 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM EST

Knowledge of Linux is indispensable for using advanced CI. While GUIs are becoming more prevalent, being able to work at the command line interface (CLI) provides the greatest power and flexibility. In this session, we assume that participants are already comfortable with basic Linux operations such as creating, deleting and renaming files, and navigating between directories.

Data Visualization Techniques and Tools 12/08/23 - 02:30 PM - 04:00 PM EST

This virtual seminar will introduce data visualization techniques and tools. Attendees should have some prior knowledge of programming and data analysis. The 90-minute seminar will focus on essential concepts and hands-on experience in data visualization.

Topics Covered:

Expanse: Interactive Computing on High Performance Computing Resources 12/07/23 - 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM EST

Interactive computing refers to working with software that accepts input from the user as it runs. This applies not only to business and office applications, such as word processing and spreadsheet software, but HPC use cases involving code development, real-time data exploration and advanced visualizations run across one or more compute nodes. Interactive computing is often used when applications require large memory, have large data sets that are not that practical to download to local devices, need access to higher core counts, or rely on software that is difficult to install.
