Introduction to Hadoop, HDFS, and Pig
This workshop will give an overview about Hadoop, an open source software framework for large scale data processing, the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and Pig, a high-level language for analyzing large data sets. Simple, hands-on exercises will be used to illustrate the concepts. Please bring your own laptop; a virtual machine with a single-node Hadoop installation will be provided.

Large scale visualization with ParaView- Part One


ParaView is a powerful open-source turnkey application for analyzing and visualizing large data sets in parallel. Designed to be configurable, extendible, and scalable, ParaView is built upon the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to allow rapid deployment of visualization components. This tutorial presents the architecture of ParaView and the fundamentals of parallel visualization. Attendees will learn the basics of using ParaView for scientific visualization with hands-on lessons. The tutorial features detailed guidance in visualizing the massive simulations run on today’s supercomputers and an introduction to scripting and extending ParaView. Attendees should bring laptops to install ParaView and follow along with the demonstrations.

Scientific Computing with Python
Python is a powerful open source interpreted language that has been adopted widely in many application areas. This tutorial is a hands-on introduction to using Python for computational science. The goal of this tutorial is to teach participants how to use Python in their computational workflows.  We will emphasize Numpy and Scipy, Python's modules for scientific computing, and Matplotlib, the standard Python package for plotting and visualization.

Globus Online for Research Data Management
The goal of the tutorial is to introduce researchers and systems administrators to the easy-to-use Globus Online services for moving and sharing large amounts of data. Increasingly computational- and data-intensive science makes data movement and sharing across organizations inevitable. The cloud-hosted Globus Online service offers dropbox-like simplicity for big data. 

In this tutorial, attendees will learn how to perform fire-and-forget file transfer, sharing, and synchronization between their local machine, campus clusters, regional supercomputers and national cyberinfrastructure using Globus Online, via both Web and command line interfaces. 

Tutorial attendees will also learn how to install Globus Connect Multiuser on their campus cluster to provide data transfer endpoints to their users. The tutorial will include instruction on using Globus Online via the CLI, using scripts for controlling Globus Online operations; and how to use the Globus transfer REST API, for programmatic interaction with Globus Online. By the end of the tutorial, participants will have the tools and information required to provide their users with Globus Online’s full range of benefits.

HPC 101- Part One

In the first session we will discuss the importance of parallel computing to high performance computing. We will by example, show the basic concepts of parallel computing. The advantages and disadvantages of parallel computing will be discussed. We will present an overview of current and future trends in HPC hardware.

 

The second session will provide an introduction to MPI, the most common package used to write parallel programs for HPC platforms. As tradition dictates, we will show how to write "Hello World" in MPI. Attendees will be shown how to and allowed to build and run relatively simple examples on a consortium resource. This session will briefly discuss other important HPC topics. This will include a discussion of OpenMP, hybrid programming, combining MPI and OpenMP. Some computational libraries available for HPC will be highlighted. We will briefly mention parallel computing using graphic processing units (GPUs).
