Training on Allinea Software will be a featured segment at the XSEDE15 conference in St. Louis next week. The event is designed to help scientists and developers make more efficient use of their time and system allocations.
The XSEDE15 event highlights the achievements made on XSEDE resources. XSEDE provides the organization and seamless infrastructure that connects students and researchers at countless universities and research centers with the NSF’s most powerful systems, such as SDSC Comet, NICS Darter and TACC Stampede.
We are thrilled to be part of the program. With Allinea’s tools already installed on so many of the XSEDE systems, we wanted to be here to show as many XSEDE users as possible how they can develop their software more easily and increase its performance by bringing development tools like Allinea Forge into their everyday practices,” says David Lecomber, CEO of Allinea Software.
The tutorial session on Wednesday 29th July will promote best practices for scientific software development. It will introduce profiling and debugging to users and is open to all attendees. It will show how to speed up software to take advantage of processor capabilities or to remove scalability bottlenecks in I/O or communication that are impacting performance – and how to fix software defects quickly, even at high core counts.
The very high demand for these resources means that it is also essential for applications to be correct and to run as efficiently as possible in order to maximize scientific impact,” said John Towns, PI and project director of XSEDE. “The nation’s researchers can benefit greatly from the training offered by such experts.”
