E-CAM wishes to develop an appropriate online training infrastructure over the course of the project. To this end, it is establishing strong partnerships with PRACE and other similar initiatives in Europe and the US in order to provide innovative training content that can bring the E-CAM user communities to extreme scale.
The infrastructure to support these efforts is now in place with the initial content collected during the ESDW program of 2017 currently being added. The extent of the development efforts to create the platform, as well as the organisational structure we adopt to leverage it, is outlined in the following subsections.
The results of this effort, the E-CAM Training Portal, are publicly available since December 2017.
Other training opportunities
In the development of it’s own training material, E-CAM will take the example of the Software Carpentry Foundation who are leaders in the field of developing collaboratively created, open source training content for teaching researchers computational skillsets.
Software Carpentry maintains a set of core lessons that form the basic toolbox of a computational researcher, and from which they can develop more complex skills. The core lessons webpage also contains video presentations of the core lessons, as well as links to all of the source material.
In particular, given the the main E-CAM software development service is our GitLab repository, we recommend that all members of the E-CAM community are familiar with the version control system Git. Git is core content within the Software Carpentry syllabus, with the both basic and more advanced material available.
List of online HPC training repositories
The list below was compiled by the group that have been coordinating the “Best Practices in HPC Training” workshop at SC14, SC15 and SC16.
