A number of high performance computing training videos from the HPC Group at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) are now available on »YouTube.  These workshops were held in March 2014.

PPCES (Parallel Programming in Computational Engineering and Science) is the annual introductory HPC event offered by the IT Center of RWTH Aachen University. The 2014 event continues the tradition of previous week-long events that take place in Aachen every spring since 2001.

A wide spectrum of topics were covered, ranging from serial programming and architectures (Monday) to parallel programming using MPI (Tuesday) and OpenMP (Wednesday). Furthermore, they introduced the participants to modern features of the OpenMP standard like vectorization and programming for accelerators and for the Many Integrated Core (MIC) Architecture (Thursday) as well as GPGPU programming with OpenACC (Friday).
