Successful Python Programming Workshop

On Friday December 5th NeSI ran a half-day Python Programming Workshop at the University of Auckland, which was attended at full capacity by 25 participants. The presenters Jordi Blasco, Peter Maxwell, John Rugis and Sung Bae covered topics including an introduction to the University of Auckland compute cluster, the SLURM scheduler, parallel programming with Python and visualisation with ParaView. The interactive one-on-one and small group session was rated very highly by those attending.

As a result of the feedback collected, NeSI's Computational Science Team has decided to more tightly focus the target level and increase the interactive content in our next several workshops. Continuing this initiative, NeSI is in the process of planning two workshops, one in Christchurch and one in Auckland, utilising the Software Carpentry framework. Watch this space for further details!
