Kickstart Your HPC Journey (Cluster Challenge)

Kickstart Your HPC Journey (Cluster Challenge)


To produce a guide and supporting suite of resources as a toolkit to enable the set up and running of an HPC cluster challenge by any institution in the community.   

Summary of work undertaken 

A 2-day student cluster challenge event was hosted at University College London. Through this, all resources needed to facilitate a cluster challenge were created, including advertising and promotion material, example agenda and timetable, and technical challenges at two different levels of difficulty. Practical co-ordination advice, including training pre-requisites, hardware, helpers etc. was gathered, and a lesson learned document was created.


A GitHub repository of all “Kickstart your HPC Journey” resources needed for planning and hosting a cluster challenge.  These are expected to be available for release to the community later 2022/early 2023.
