Training: Programming Hackathons

In Summer 2016, scientists from NASA, NCI, BNL and 3 UDEL teams gathered at the University of Delaware for a GPU Programming Hackathon. Watch the recap video shared by NVIDIA news center and photos. Similarly in summer 2017, a Brookathon was held at Brookhaven National Lab in collaboration with Meifeng Lin, a CSI computational scientist, Fernanda Foertter, a HPC user support specialist and programmer and several others. The hackathon stories and training experiences were captured in this paper presented at the 2017 EduHPC workshop co-located with SC17.
