Parallel Programming with Python
Duration 0.5 days
Team ACRC (Advanced Computing Research Centre)
The workshop will give a basic introduction to Parallel Programming to allow your Python scripts to make best use of multi-core and multi-code computer clusters.  It will provide a good grounding in the philosophy of Parallel Programming and will give you a working knowledge of how to write Parallel Programs in Python.  This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how you can add parallelism to your Python scripts and will discuss best practice to gain maximum performance.  While the workshop will be based on Python, the basic ideas are transferrable. 
Pre-Requisites This workshop will be based on Python and you should already have a good working knowledge of Python or have completed the 'Beginning Python' and 'Intermediate Python' courses.  If you are bringing your own laptop you must ensure that you have downloaded and installed Anaconda Python http://continuum.io.downloads
