Programming with GC3Pie

GC3Pie training on March 19-20, 2013.

Object-oriented Python

This 2-day course covers the basics of python programming and object-orientation. The first day of the course introduces Python syntax and the fundamental data types. The second day of the course covers Object-oriented Python: the basic concepts of object-oriented programming (class, instances, interfaces and inheritance) are introduced along with Python code examples. Then we delve into object-oriented Python idioms that every working Python programmer should know about.

GC3 Cloud infrastructure: Presenting the GC3 cloud system "Hobbes"

This introductory seminar is aimed at those who want to start testing the GC3 ?Hobbes cloud infrastructure. More specifically this seminar is targeting those users who wants to implement their own scientific usecase levering the services that the GC3 group offers on its could infrastructure Hobbes.

Large Scale Computing Infrastructures (UZH Fall Semester 2012)

This class provides an introductory overview on large scale computing infrastructures; the main focus is on how scientific "use cases" can be enabled on such systems, what are the main technical challenges that have to be addressed, and what are the currently available solutions.

The lectures survey the current approaches in large scale computing infrastructure in both academic and industrial environments. The national grid computing infrastructure SMSCG is used as a reference model as well as for the practical activities.

This is class MINF4526 in the fall semester 2012 lectures at UZH.

GC3Pie training, 1-2 October 2012

This course covers the basics of GC3Pie programming from scratch to the development of workflows. At the end of the two-day training, participants should be able to start programming scientific application workflows using GC3Pie classes, and build the support scripts that allow large-scale runs of those applications and workflows.
