Python is a modern general purpose programming language that is popular in scientific computing for its readable syntax and extremely rich ecosystem of scientific and mathematical modules.
This two part tutorial will first introduce you to the concept of interactive high performance computing, as distinct from batch computing. We will cover the Citrix (Windows) and NICE EnginFrame (Linux) interactive computing environments hosted by MSI.
This tutorial will help users learn the basics of parallel computation methods, including strategies for collecting calculations together for parallel execution. A brief description of parallel programming using MPI message passing will be given.
This tutorial will help users learn the basics of compiling and debugging their code on MSI systems. Particular attention will be paid to code written in Fortran, C, and C++. Basic methods for debugging will be outlined, with users being able to explore different debugging tools.
