introduction into the usage of the version control system git and the features of MPCDF gitlab and the usage of the Continuous Integration (CI) features of it.

MPCDF will again organize an advanced HPC workshop for users of the MPG from Monday, November 22nd until Wednesday, November 24th, 2021 with an optional day with hands-on on Thursday, November 25th. The work-shop will be given online.

The main topics of the lectures are

•Software engineering for HPC codes (git, gitlab, CI,testing)
•Debugging and profiling of CPU and GPU codes
•Porting codes to GPU-accelerated systems

As a prerequisite, we require participants to have an account for the HPC machines of MPCDF and are already familiar with accessing, building and running their codes.

If you are interested in bringing in your own code to work with the experts and to apply the techniques and tools taught in the lectures, please apply by adding a short description of your code and specific goals in the registration form. The entire Thursday, November 25th is dedicated to working on the selected code projects.

The workshop will be given by members of the application group of the MPCDF together with experts from Intel and Nvidia. The registration will open soon and can be accessed via the MPCDF training website The deadline for registration for the lectures is November 12th. Please note the earlier deadline October 15th for the additional hands-on day. The applicants for the hands-on day are asked to test the building of the code on Raven and to prepare a representative test case for the problem that they want to inspect (ideally the test can be run on a single Raven node, either GPU or CPU) in advance of the workshop. Assistance by MPCDF is provided on request.
