Cori KNL Hands On Hack-A-Thon

September 27, 2017


NERSC will be hosting a one day hands-on hack-a-thon for users to build, evaluate, and improve their applications and workflows on Cori's KNL partition. The day will include a short introduction to the Cori KNL nodes, instructions on building and running applications, and a description of available tools. The vast majority of the day being dedicated for hands-on work with NERSC experts present. 

Bring with you an application and/or input deck (e.g., for your own app or an app NERSC supports) that you want to evaluate on Cori KNL nodes. 

We can help you get started with a wide range of topics from compiling, your first batch scripts, performance comparisons, performance analysis and optimization advice.
