CSCS HPC Summer School 2016
This repository contains the materials used in the Summer School, including source code, lecture notes and slides. Material will be added to the repository throughout the course, which will require that students either update their copy of the repository, or download/checkout a new copy of the repository.
Getting the repository
On your own computer
You will want to download the repository to your laptop to get all of the slides. The best method is to use git, so that you can update the repository as more slides and material are added over the course of the school. So, if you have git installed, use the same method as for Piz Daint below (in a directory of your choosing).
You can also download the code as a zip file by clicking on the green Clone or download button on the top right hand side of the github page, then clicking on Download zip.
On Piz Daint
Piz Daint has git installed, so we can download the code directly to where we will be working on the exercises and practicals.
# log onto Piz Daint ... # go to scratch cd $SCRATCH # it is a good policy to put it in a personal path mkdir johnsmith cd johnsmith git clone https://github.com/eth-cscs/SummerSchool2016.git
Updating the repository
Lecture slides and source code will be continually added and updated throughout the course. To update the repository you can simply go inside the path
git pull origin master
There is a posibility that you might have a conflict between your working version of the repository and the origin. In this case you can ask one of the assistants for help.
