Short Courses

Last Updated: June 16, 2020

NOTE: All remaining short courses for Summer 2020 will only be offered via Zoom sessions. HPRC can provide instruction on setting up Zoom sessions for academic classes to instructors. Please contact us at for further details.

Every semester, HPRC holds short courses ranging in topics for beginning, intermediate, and advanced users. Every semester we start with the Introduction to Linux course. It covers material that is prerequisite to ALL other short courses. This, along with the Introduction to the Ada and Terra Clusters course form the absolute minimum basis for using the respective clusters effectively. All courses will be delivered in an interactive style through a live login session. Attendants can bring laptops although installed workstations will be available. In general, slides and other supplemental materials are available on each course page.

Please make sure you have a valid HPRC account if you want to follow the material by logging in. If you do not have an account, you can apply here.

Each short course is a one day course. Registration is required with a seating limit of ~45.

For our course offerings from previous semesters, please consult this page.
