Comments about training. In what area should we focus our attention? 5 responses

Short, concise, easy to find, relevant info on the Web. Something I can print out and use as a handy reference.

I learned a lot from various training classes, especially when I was new to NERSC.

A short 3-4day workshop training would be very helpfull.

I have so little spare time it is hard to say what I would attend. What Phase II of the IBM-SP arrives, you may need some programming classes on effective use of the hybrid architecture.

I have not seen any classes advertised that looked interesting enough to take me away from my immediate assignments. Maybe I am not a good target for them however.
