- 5: Provide concise web documentation and online tutorials
Easily accessible, concise information.
Regarding online information, I prefer "cookbook recipes" rather than discourses.
Brief documents for every command and option, plus examples.
Training is excellent for getting started. Please keep the number of mouse klicks small if one just wants to refresh one's memory concerning a command or important number (->"I have read this once, but where is this page...")
I've been happy with the on-line tutorials and NERSC specific documentation. It should be a high priority to maintain them. It also might be useful to provide PDF files with tables of contents and page numbers of the longer tutorials because they are more useful as printed reference materials.
- 2: Provide web-based training
I have not used any of these classes in the recent past. I occasionally download some slides if I need to look into some particular issue.
web training .. I usually cannot go to classes .. I live in Ohio.
- 1: Provide classroom training
Off-site training held at major centers around the nation (ORNL,BNL,etc.) would make it easier to learn about the most efficient ways to utilize the NERSC resources.
