This three day course will give the participants basic knowledge of the Fortran 95/2003 programming language together with glimpses on the latest revisions of the Fortran standard and its most useful constructs.

The course is divided into two parts: the first two days cover the Fortran 95/2003 programming language and the third one dives into the co-array feature (CAF) of the Fortran 2008 standard.

Each day includes lectures and practical hands-on exercises.

Learning outcome
At the end of the course, the attendees will be able to write small Fortran programs and understand legacy (and newer) software written in Fortran, and to have an idea on the co-arrays approach in parallel computing.

Using Unix/Linux as well as knowledge of how to use text editors like emacs or vi.

Lecturers: Pekka Manninen (CSC), Sami Saarinen (CSC), David Henty (EPCC)

Price: Free of charge
