Getting Started

Find references to guides for a quick, straightforward, and typically hands-on introduction to topics related to the usage of HPC systems.

HPC Wiki

A good introduction to important terms and techniques (e.g. make, cmake, ssh, compiler, modules, vim, screen & tmux, python & pip, scp, rsync, git, shell, bash, & NUMA) as well as first steps for the operational usage of HPC infrastructure can be found at the HPC Wiki.

The wiki is built up continuously within the HPC.NRW project.
