Object-Oriented Programming in Fortran 2003

March 26-28, 2012 &
April 10-12, 2012

Fortran 2003 explicitly supports object-oriented programming (OOP). OOP aims to increase a program's maintainability in part by reducing cross-module data dependencies and to increase a program's reusability in part by providing for extensible derived types. Emerging compiler support for Fortran 2003 inspires a more modern program design and implementation style. This course provides the requisite skills. Read More »


Software Carpentry Bootcamp

March 28-29, 2012
NERSC will be hosting a free two-day Software Carpentry Boot Camp on March 28-29 to introduce scientists to skills and tools that will allow them to use computing more efficiently. The workshop will cover the core skills a researcher needs to know in order to be productive in a small team, and will be followed by four to eight weeks of self-spaced online learning. Read More »
