Tutorial: Introduction to scalable programming using Makeflow and Work Queue
Tutorial at CCL Workshop, Room 112 Notre Dame Conference Center (McKenna
Hall), October 10, 2013.
This tutorial will provide a brief introduction to writing scalable
applications using Makeflow and Work Queue, developed by the Cooperative Computing Lab. The tutorial
consists of a lecture that gives an overview of the software and applications,
an hands-on instruction that will demonstrate and walk through the
installation and use of Work Queue and Makeflow to write scalable programs, and
practice problems to try after the tutorial.
Laptop with an SSH client.
Familiarity with Unix.
Ability to program in Python, Perl, or C (for the Work Queue portion of tutorial).
