Course overview

This whole day course will begin with a short (optional) introduction to Linux. We then continue with an introduction to HPC and HPC2N, followed by a walkthrough of the Kebnekaise system, including the GPUs and KNLs. In the afternoon we go through the module system and take a brief look at how to submit jobs. During the hands-on you will get the opportunity to try loading modules, compile a program, and submit a job to the Kebnekaise cluster. For those who are interested, there will be a guided tour of the machine rooms.

Participation is open to all existing and prospective users of HPC from Swedish institutions.
