HPC@LSU offers a sequence of tutorials every semester.

1. March 22,2023: Introduction to Python

TopicIntroduction to Python
DateMarch 22,2023
Time9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
PlaceZoom Online
DescriptionPython is a high-level programming language, easy to learn yet extremely powerful. This training will provide an introduction to programming in Python. The subjects include basic Python syntax, Python classes used in object-oriented programming. Basic Python modules for scientific computing and plotting will also be introduced. During the training, simple Python programs will be provided for demonstration.

  • Basic understanding of a programming language is assumed but not required.

2. March 29,2023: Managing Software Packages with Conda Virtual Environment

TopicManaging Software Packages with Conda Virtual Environment
DateMarch 29,2023
Time9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
PlaceZoom Online
DescriptionConda is an open source package management system and environment management system. It quickly installs, runs and updates packages and their dependencies. It also easily creates, saves, loads and switches between environments on your computer. Though initially created for Python, Conda now becomes a powerful tool to manage software packages in genenral.

For HPC users, installing and managing software packages without super user permission is often a challange. Conda is especially useful for these tasks. In this training, we will discuss how you can use Conda and virtual environments to install and manage software packages on our clusters, including frequently requested examples such as Tensorflow and PyTorch. We will also share some useful tips, such as sharing virtual environment with group members and using Conda to manage software packages beyond Python (e.g., R / Perl).

  • Basic understanding of the shell commands and python programming language is assumed but not required.
