Upcoming training events

  • Unidata Software Training Workshop

    The Unidata Program Center's 2014 Software Training Workshop, scheduled to begin October 21, features classes about the IDV, GEMPAK, and AWIPS II display and analysis packages; the Local Data Manager (LDM) and THREDDS Data Server (TDS) data access and management tools; and a session on using Python with Unidata's tools.

    The workshop will be held at the Unidata Program Center in UCAR's Foothills Lab in Boulder.

  • XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI

    The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and the Texas Advanced Computing Center are presenting a two-day MPI workshop November 5-6, 2014.

    The workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Participants will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI—the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

  • “NCL on Yellowstone” class/webinar

    CISL is offering a one-hour class and webcast at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22, for those who want to learn how to use NCAR Command Language (NCL) effectively in the Yellowstone environment.
