Python in HPC
SESSION: Python in HPC
EVENT TYPE: Tutorials
TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):Andy Terrel, Travis Oliphant, Aron Ahmadia, Kurt Smith
The Python ecosystem empowers the HPC community with a stack of tools that are not only powerful but a joy to work with. It is consistently one of the top languages in HPC with a growing vibrant community of open source tools. Proven to scale on the worlds largest clusters, it is a language that has continued to innovate with a wealth of new data tools. This tutorial will survey the state of the art tools and techniques used by HPC Python experts throughout the world. The first half of the day will include an introduction to the standard toolset used in HPC Python and techniques for speeding Python and using legacy codes by wrapping Fortan and C. The second half of the day will include discussion on using Python in a distributed workflow via MPI and tools for handling Big Data analytics. Students should be familar with basic Python syntax, we recommend the Python 2.7 tutorial on python.org. We will include hands-on demonstrations of building simulations, wrapping low-level code, executing on a cluster via MPI, and use of big data tools. Examples for a range of experience levels will be provided.
