Course Description: This workshop is an introduction to using high-performance computing systems effectively. By the end of this 3 hour workshop, learners will know how to: Connect to a cluster and write simple batch job scripts, submit and manage jobs on a cluster using a scheduler, transfer files, and use software through environment modules. Please note that this class is for people who are beginners to HPC and SLURM. We will not be going into a deep dive on SLURM or sbatch directives. The class is not for people who already have HPC/SLURM experience. Some Linux command line experience with navigating the filesystem (ls, and cd commands) and editing files (nano) is helpful but not necessary.
