The Summer of HPC 2017 training week has long since passed and we have all started our projects in our respective countries. It has been about 2 weeks since we landed in Edinburgh and within that time I think I can safely say we have all settled in nicely here.
I must say I quite like the lifestyle here, although I guess it isn’t much different to the lifestyle in Ireland (my homeland) and probably why I fit in so well here! Despite this, I’m still getting used to some of the words they use here and a few of the countryside accents.

I am currently in Edinburgh, home of the biggest celebration of arts and culture on the planet, and of course I am referring to the famous Fringe Festival. But we have plenty of time until the festival begins and my blog starts documenting all the exciting cultural events that happen in this cool city. So it is just the right moment for me to introduce you to my internship project for PRACE’s Summer of HPC.

A team of students from EPCC's MSc programmes took part in this year's Student Cluster Competition at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Germany. The competition requires teams to design and configure a cluster on which they optimise and run benchmarks and applications within a power budget of 3000 watts.
Here Team EPCC and its coach Emmanouil Farsarakis tell us about their hard work and its rewards.
