Julia for High-Performance Computing, May 24, 2023

May 24, 2023


The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a (virtual) “Julia for High-Performance Computing Tutorial” via Zoom on May 24, 2023, from 10 am -1 PM Pacific time. OLCF, NERSC, and ALCF users are encouraged to attend. The proposed tutorial introduces participants to the Julia language for high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Julia proposes to fill a gap in the high-performance plus high-productivity space, a dynamic language built on top of LLVM with lightweight interoperability with C and Fortran code and a unified ecosystem for data science and reproducibility.

This half-day 3-hour tutorial session will cover topics relevant to a HPC audience using a hands-on approach. Contents are divided in 3 modules: i) Brief introduction to Julia, ii) developing and running a HPC mini app including simulation using Threads, CUDA.jl and AMDGPU.jl programming models, parallel I/O using ADIOS2.jl, and iii) exposure to Jupyter and Pluto.jl Notebooks for interactive computing. Bonus: VS Code and Copilot for Julia development work.
