Each session includes hands-on exercises to facilitate the understanding of the different constructs. As a participant, you have already some familiarities with C, Fortran, or Python programming, and in these two days you will be able to start the development of your own parallel application.

The materials for this course have been developed at HLRS by Dr. Rolf Rabenseifner.


  • Please bring your own laptop (with a ssh client installed) for the hands-on sessions!
  • Knowledge of Linux/Unix commands is necessary.
  • Knowledge of either C/C++, Fortran or Python programming language is necessary.
