[ANN] Training course "Julia for HPC" in Stuttgart, Germany on Sep 20-23, 2022

Hey everyone!

At HLRS we are offering a new “Julia for High-Performance Computing” course, which will take place on-site at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) in Stuttgart, Germany from September 20th through 23rd, 2022. The instructor, Carsten Bauer (@carstenbauer), is an HPC expert and has been using and teaching the Julia programming language for several years.

This 4-day course introduces the Julia programming language as a modern approach to high-performance numerical computing. Starting from the foundations and characteristic language features (e.g. multiple dispatch, type inference) the course will discuss and demonstrate how Julia manages to deliver high performance while also being high-level and dynamic. It will teach participants the necessary language concepts to achieve high performance in Julia and avoid common pitfalls. The course will cover “serial” and parallel computing (multithreading, distributed computing, MPI) and will provide insights into how to readily offload computations to NVIDIA GPUs.
Hands-on sessions on each day will allow the participants to interactively explore the language and immediately test and apply the discussed concepts. The course is targeted towards users with either prior HPC or Julia programming experience.

Please register until September 4th, 2022 via our website
https://www.hlrs.de/training/2022/julia/
As a PRACE course, this event is free of charge for academic participants from PRACE member countries (for more details see course website).

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested as well. And please do not hesitate to get in touch with me in case of questions :blush:

Looks really interesting.
I will not be able to attend, but is there any chance the sessions will be recorded and/or de the course material distributed?

Thanks,
Olivier

Recorded no. The course material is likely going to be released publicly under a CC license, but we haven’t yet decided on the specifics. If you would like to check back in mid-August, we should have more concrete information about the course material by then.
