In a previous blog post I talked about ePython, the very lightweight version of Python that I have developed for the Epiphany co-processor. This co-processor is combined with a dual core ARM CPU on the Parallella single board computer, and this week an updated OS image was released for the machine which now includes ePython pre-installed.

Connor Walsh is a school pupil who joined us on a work experience placement last week. Here's his report.
I have been "working" at the EPCC offices at Edinburgh University under Eilidh Troup on a project using Python and Pygame to simulate how much an object would sink in water when you change the mass and the volume of the object.

It has been around two years since a number of us at EPCC became science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ambassadors and, as part of our outreach activities, we have maintained our membership of STEMNET (you have to do at least one STEM-related event per year).

Supercomputing, the biggest conference in our calendar, is on next week and one of the activities I am doing is presenting a paper at the workshop on Python for High-Performance and Scientific Computing.

September seems to have passed by in a bit of a blur, and it's already a whole month since the CP2K Summer School, which we ran at King's College London (23-26th August), so I thought it would be a good time to give an update on the recent activities of the CP2K-UK project.

These students from around Europe have spent the last 7 weeks with us at EPCC immersed in HPC, and each working on a specific project in the field. This is a great because not only do they gain experience and interest in HPC but we also get a useful, tangible, outcome from these projects.

We're looking for collaborative projects with industry and academia.
As ever we are on the look-out for interesting collaborative projects for the students to undertake towards the end of their course (roughly from April/May to August).

With my Software Sustainability Institute hat on, I recently participated in a back-to-back Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry course sponsored by the University's Research Data Service here at the University of Edinburgh. The courses were held in the main University library in a gorgeous room with a glass wall, providing a rather distracting view of the Meadows parkland.
