A course on Parallel Programming promoted in collaboration with Leonardo and Cineca

EuroCC Italy, Leonardo and Cineca invite software developers and programmers to the “Parallel Programming” course scheduled for February 28th and 29th, 2024, in Genoa, at the SIIT ScpA headquarters.

This two-day training offers a unique opportunity for those wishing to dive into the world of parallel programming and High Performance Computing (HPC): designed and dedicated to developers and programmers with a basic knowledge of computer science and an interest in HPC technologies, the course led by professionals from Cineca and Leonardo provides a mix of theoretical insights and practical experiments, during which participants can explore the paradigms of “Message Passing” and “Shared Memory”, as well as GPU programming with NVIDIA CUDA.

The main goal is to equip participants with the necessary skills to use and interact with supercomputers, introducing key concepts such as OpenMP, MPI, and mpi4py, and programming with CUDA.
