Overview

On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. This 3 half-days course teaches parallel programming with MPI for Python starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions allow to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI).
