HPC@LSU will hold the 1st LBRN/LONI Scientific Computing Bootcamp on May 28 - 29 in Business Education Complex, Room 1835 at LSU, Baton Rouge, LA.

Nowadays computing is ever more ubiquitous. Skills and knowledge that are necessary to take full advantage of the power of computing, however, are often inadequately present in both curricular and extracurricular training. The purpose of this workshop is, by both presentation and hands-on experiences, to help attendants understand how computers work and to prepare them for the computational study and research career in the future.

In two days the attendants will learn:

  • The basics of Python programming language
  • Practical knowledge about computer and its components
  • Command line interface of Linux
  • Version control concept
