R in an HPC environment

In the present course you will learn several strategies to write faster and more efficient code in R. This will be done in several steps starting from a serial code and then using existing packages to parallelize code so that it can take advantage of the many core architecture of Kebnekaise. An HPC cluster such as Kebnekaise is useful for R users because it can provide both more CPU power and memory than what a personal computer can offer but one needs to make code aware of these resources. We will explore ways to achieve the latter and when parallel algorithms are suitable and possible. 

This course will be two half-days. It will have lectures interspersed with some hands-on sessions where you get to try out what you have just learned.

NOTE: The course will be online! We will use Zoom. A link to the Zoom room will be distributed to the participants shortly before the course.

The course is a cooperation between HPC2N and PDC and is also part of the PRACE Training courses. It is thus open for academics and people who work in industry in the PRACE member countries.
