Introduction to Using NERSC

Richard Gerber, NERSC User Services Group

Shane Canon, NERSC Technology Integration Group

This half-day training will enable new users from the Joint Genome Institute to get connected and running jobs at NERSC. We will cover NERSC computational and storage systems, accounts and passwords, connecting to NERSC, compiling codes, running parallel jobs, and software available at NERSC.
Presentations will be accompanied by hands-on exercises. Please bring a laptop with an SSH-capable client for logging into NERSC.
