|Date:||28.01.2015 9:00 - 30.01.2015 16:15|
Python is a modern, object-oriented programming language, which has become popular in several areas of software development. This course introduces the basic concepts of the Python programming language and how it can be used effectively in high-performance computing. Fast array interface (numpy), message-passing interface (mpi4py), and several other useful Python packages such as scipy and matplotlib are introduced. C extension, i.e how to integrate code written in C directly as a part of a Python program, are also shown. Examples include prototyping and solving numerical problems with Python, steering simulations with Python scripts and analyzing results with the help of Python. Course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises.
The course is part of the PRACE Advanced Training Centre activity, see the PRACE Training portal for material and further information about the course.
