Information about scheduled courses will be posted below as course dates are confirmed.


High Performance and Throughput Computing using the Legion HPC cluster

This two day course includes presented material and hands-on sessions to provide attendees with a practical introduction to High Performance and Throughput Computing techniques, and their application on the Legion HPC cluster. We will provide a temporary training account to use for the duration of the course. Please see the course information for pre-requisites and details of the topics covered.

NB the first day of this course is now optional for those with existing Unix/Linux experience. You are required to attend both days if you need a refresher, or are not familiar with all of the following: command line execution, Unix files and directories, file manipulation and editing (for example, using vim), transferring files across the network, scripting techniques for workflows.

Software Carpentry Bootcamp

Our goal is to help researchers across college become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing, and task automation. In this two-day boot camp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.

This two day course is aimed at UCL postgraduate students and research staff who are familiar with basic programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays, and functions) but need help to translate this knowledge into practical tools to help them work more productively.

Please see the course information for pre-requisites and details of the topics covered.

You are required to bring your own laptop to the course. The course will be taught in a classroom without desktop machines.

NB Suitable Unix/Linux experience is now a prerequisite and will be assumed from the start of the Bootcamp; if you need a refresher, or have no experience of the command line environment then you should attend Introduction to the Unix Shell first.
