In this video, Barry Smith from Argonne presents: Developing, Configuring, Building, and Deploying HPC Software.
“The process of developing HPC software requires consideration of issues in software design as well as practices that support the collaborative writing of well-structured code that is easy to maintain, extend, and support. This presentation will provide an overview of development environments and how to configure, build, and deploy HPC software using some of the tools that are frequently used in the community. We will also discuss ways in which these and other tools are best utilized by various categories of scientific software developers, ranging from small teams (for example, a faculty member and graduate students who are writing research code intended primarily for their own use) through moderate/large teams (for example, collaborating developers spread among multiple institutions who are writing publicly distributable code intended for use by others in the community).”
This was the second in a series of webinars on “Best Practices for HPC Software Developers”. It is a joint effort of the ALCF, the IDEAS software productivity project, NERSC, and the OLCF.
