Allinea DDT and MAP Training 2015

NERSC will host an in-depth training course on Allinea DDT, a graphical parallel debugger, and Allinea MAP, a graphical parallel performance profiler, on Thursday, May 14, 2015.  This training class will be provided by an Allinea staff member teamed up with a USG consultant.

If you would like your code to be used by the class for debugging or profiling in the hands-on session in the afternoon, please indicate that to us. We will need to determine suitability of the code and prepare the code in advance for the class


This event will be presented online using WebEx technology and in person at NERSC Oakland Scientific Facility. Please see the remote setup page for information about how to join remotely.


There is no registration for the online event. Visit the remote setup page for connection information.
