Our guest blogger is Jakub Piotr Nurski, one of our 2017 Summer Of HPC students.

During this summer I’m trying to get a little better every day. As a hiking enthusiast, I really love to get on track during weekends. Scottish Highlands paths seem to be slightly worse maintained and much less congested than Tatra Mountains paths. It is great for someone who likes to get off the beaten track sometimes.

Greetings from Edinburgh’s sunny festival season.

During the past few weeks I have been both exploring this vibrant city and cultivating my Python programming skills. I will give you more details about how my work has been going, but first let me introduce you to some of the adventures I’ve had. From Edinburgh Castle to museums of modern art and street performances, this city has it all. The local pubs have their own vivid rhythm, and the traditional delicious fish and chips combination. We were even brave enough to try haggis and deep-fried Mars Bars here.

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.

PRACE’s Summer of HPC programme has been running for quite a few years now. Each year around twenty students from universities across Europe travel to different countries to spend eight weeks at an HPC centre, working on a project with a mentor.

Summer of HPC visitor Tomislav Subic gives a summary of his project at EPCC: a visualisation of the UK Met Office's weather model.

A legend says that there was once a warm sunny day in Scotland. I have started my quest to find out if the myth was true, but I was not the only one.

 Summer of HPC visitor Tomislav Subic writes about his introduction to Edinburgh and EPCC.

“It’s gonna be cold and rainining up there the whole time…”

If I got a pound every time I heard that in the last months, I could buy a kilt (which are not cheap by the way). While most of my fellow SoHPCers are fleeing the north in order to spend their summer on the sunny Mediterranean beaches, I am doing the opposite.

The cluster challenge game nears completion

This summer we hosted a PRACE Summer of HPC student, Anna, who has been working with us on an HPC supercomputer cluster challenge game which she previously blogged about here. The idea of this has been to gamify the design of a supercomputer, balancing the desire for advanced components (CPU, memory and accelerators) against budget and power efficiency.

Anna Chantzoplaki is working on the project “HPC Cluster Challenge app” with EPCC's Nick Brown and Amy Krause as part of the PRACE Summer of HPC Summer School. This project is developing a public outreach application that will allow participants to design their own computer cluster by choosing components within a fixed budget, configuring them and measuring performance.
