This 4-day course introduces the Julia programming language as a modern approach to high-performance numerical computing. Starting from the foundations and characteristic language features (e.g. multiple dispatch, type inference) the course will discuss and demonstrate how Julia manages to deliver high performance while also being high-level and dynamic. It will teach participants the necessary language concepts to achieve high performance in Julia and avoid common pitfalls. The course will cover "serial" and parallel computing (multithreading, distributed computing, MPI) and will provide insights into how to readily offload computations to NVIDIA GPUs.
Hands-on sessions on each day will allow the participants to interactively explore the language and immediately test and apply the discussed concepts.
This course is especially appropriate for you if
- you have HPC experience and are interested in Julia, or
- you have basic Julia knowledge and want to dive into the HPC aspects of the language.
