EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education

TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Speaker(s):Dave Joiner, Charlie Peck, Henry Neeman, Tom Murphy, Dan Ernst


The Bootable Cluster CD is a software platform designed to allow Computational Science & Engineering and High Performance Computing instruction to concentrate on education and not on the requisite computing infrastructure. The prerequisites are at least one semester of programming experience in C, C++ and/or Fortran, recently, and at least one semester of experience with any Unix-like operating system (including but not limited to Linux), recently. Originally developed by Paul Gray at the University of Northern Iowa, the BCCD continues to be developed by those close to CSE and HPC education. BCCD is an open-source Knoppix-based live CD that provides many of the tools for teaching CSE and HPC (e.g., GNU compiler suite, Intel compiler, multiple MPI implementations, CUDA, Java) that can be run on either a single system or on a network of computers that are automatically configured using custom networking tools to form an ad hoc temporary cluster.
