lsuIn this video, students and teachers describe the recent Beowulf Boot Camp at the LSU Center for Computation & Technology.

“This exciting course offers students and teachers a unique opportunity to work with advanced research technology not usually available in a typical classroom setting. Students will engage in the following activities: building a computer cluster from scratch; installing the Linux operating system on the computer they’ve built; connecting computers put together by their peers to make a mini-supercomputer; learning how to program a mini-supercomputer in parallel with Python; interactive activities to help understand how Parallel computing works in Supercomputing; running performance benchmarks to determine how your cluster ranks in comparison with the fastest and largest supercomputers in the world.”
