For our in-person training events we refer you to our events calendar.
E-CAM wishes to develop an appropriate online training infrastructure over it’s lifetime. To this end it is establishing strong partnerships with PRACE and leading HPC centres in Europe in order to provide appropriate training content that can bring the E-CAM user communities to the exa-scale.
This infrastructure is still under development however. Until we can offer a suitable platform for an online training infrastructure we would like to provide some information regarding existing (online) training opportunities relevant to our community.
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.
