  • C++ for scientific computing

    13 February - 3 June 2018

    Heverlee, Belgium

    C++ for scientific computing https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/c-for-scientific-computing C++ is a modern, object-oriented programming language that is used tobuild industry strength applications when performance and reliability are important.The language has a reputation of being challenging to use, but forscientific programming, a core set of features is sufficient for most programming tasks. In this training, we will concentrate on thatfeature set. Although the scope is scientific programming, most of the material presented in Bjarne Stroustrup's excellent "A tour of C++" is covered, as well as some addition introduced in the C++14 specification.The STL (Standard Template Library) will be covered in some detail since selecting the appropriate data structures and algorithms is one of themost important design decisions. We will see that C++ code can be compact, straightforward, elegant and fun to write, and is a very useful programming language for more demanding applications.Hands-on and programming challenges will be provided.

  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    19 - 23 February 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. 2018-02-19 09:00:00 UTC 2018-02-23 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython

  • Object-Oriented Programming with Fortran @ EPCC at STFC Daresbury

    27 - 28 February 2018

    Object-Oriented Programming with Fortran @ EPCC at STFC Daresbury https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/object-oriented-programming-with-fortran-epcc-at-stfc-daresbury Object-Oriented Programming with Fortran This course provides an introduction to Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) with Fortran. Fortran is often used for scientific applications, but applications are mainly developed using the standard procedural programming techniques that Fortran was initially designed for. OOP is a programming methodology designed to enable safe and reusable programming, coupling procedures with the data they operate on in classes and using them as objects. More commonly associated with large programs, and programs written in industry/companies, there are many scientific applications that become very large and long-lived and therefore could benefit from such programming techniques to make development, maintenance, and extension of the code simpler and safer. Whilst Fortran is generally viewed as a procedural programming language there are features in the most recent versions of the Fortran standards (90, 95, and 2003) that enable development in OOP or OOP-like ways. We will introduce these language features and discuss/explore how they can be used in scientific applications. Familiarity with a Unix or Linux environment is assumed, and some experience with Fortran is advisable for getting the most out of the course material.   Trainer Adrian Jackson Adrian Jackson is a Research Architect at EPCC, where he works on a range of different research, from investigating new memory hardware and programming models, to optimising and porting parallel codes, and working with application scientists to enable their computational simulation or data analysis. He also teaches on EPCC's MSc in HPC, giving lectures on Programming Skills, HPC Architecture, and Performance Programming.   Details Topics include: object-oriented programming, fortran modules, datatypes, polymorphic variables and procedures, constructors and destructors, and inheritance. Intended learning outcomes On completion of this course students should be able to: Develop modularised Fortran programs. Define new datatypes and operators in Fortran. Understand basic OO concepts and strategies. Develop OO programs in Fortran. Compile and run Fortran programs on ARCHER. Understand basic design trade-offs for OOP in Fortran. Prerequisites Whilst there are no prerequisites for this course, a familiarity with a Unix or Linux environment is assumed and to fully benefit from the course some familiarity with Fortran programming would be beneficial. Timetable Details are subject to change, but start, end and break times will stay the same.

    Data Analytics with HPC @ EPCC at Queen's University Belfast https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/data-analytics-with-hpc-epcc-at-queen-s-university-belfast Unfortunately we have had to cancel the upcoming run of the Data Analytics with HPC course, 28 Feb - 1 Mar, due to the national strike action recently called by the University and College Union. We plan to reschedule the course in Belfast for a later date, probably in May or June - those already registered will have priority for places. We will keep you updated by email, or keep an eye on www.archer.ac.uk/training/. Apologies for any inconvenience   This course will take place at Queen's University Belfast. Data Analytics, Data Science and Big Data are a just a few of the many terms used in business and academic research. These refer to the manipulation, processing and analysis of data and are concerned with the extraction of knowledge from data whether for competitive advantage or to provide scientific insight. In recent years, this area has undergone a revolution in which HPC has been a key driver. This course provides an overview of data science and the analytical techniques that form its basis as well as exploring how HPC provides the power that has driven their adoption. The course will cover: key data analytical techniques such as, classification, optimisation, and unsupervised learning; key parallel patterns, such as Map Reduce, for implementing analytical techniques. Attendees should be familiar with basic Linux bash shell commands and have some previous experience with Python programming. Attendees will be given temporary access to the Data Analytics Cluster on ARCHER so will not require to have Python installed on their laptops, but will require the ability to use an ssh connection (using e.g. terminal (Mac/Linux) or putty (Win)) Timetable Below is a timetable from a previous run of this course - details may be subject to change.

    Basic statistics and data handling https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/basic-statistics-and-data-handling-ad7ad935-9ede-4565-b0a6-eacc932c1eb5 This three day course is intended to open doors to applying statistics - whether directly increasing skills and personally undertaking analyses, or by expanding knowledge towards identifying collaborators. The end goal is to drive confident engagement with data analysis and further training - increasing the quality and reliability of interpretation, and putting that interpretation and subsequent presentation into the hands of the researcher. Each day of the course will deliver a mixture of lectures, workshops and hands-on practicals – and will focus on the following specific elements. Day 1 focuses on basic approaches and the computer skills required to do downstream analysis. Covering: Basic skills for data manipulation in R. How to prepare your data effectively. Principles of experimental design and how this influences analysis. On day 2, participants will explore the core concepts of statistics – so that they can begin to see how they can be applied to their own work, and to also help with better critical evaluation of the work of others. Covering: Basic statistics concepts and practice: power, variability, false discovery, t-test, effect size, simulations to understand what a p-value means. On day 3 we will continue to explore core concepts of statistics, focusing on linear regression and multiple testing correction.
