OFA Course on Writing Applications for RDMA Using OpenFabrics Software

Over at Open Fabrics, Rupert Dance from the OFA Interoperability Working Group discusses the organization’s RDMA training courses.

The RDMA training courses are delivered in two formats: (1) at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) or (2) at a vendor location using the vendor’s equipment. When we have a group of registrants from different organizations, we host the course at the UNH-IOL and use the university’s cluster for demonstration. The course runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. over two days, and the first 4 hours focus on an architectural overview of RDMA, while the remainder of the day is used for learning programming constructs (programming verbs, writing your own RDMA code). The courses generally consist of an attendance of a small (4-16) group of people as the lessons are hands-on, and all course material, including presentations and code framework built during the course, are available to attendees afterwards.
