Open Source Software
Jul 18 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The IDEAS Productivity project, in partnership with the DOE Computing Facilities of the ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC and the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has resumed the webinar series on Best Practices for HPC Software Developers, which we began in 2016.

As part of this series, we offer one-hour webinars on topics in scientific software development and high-performance computing, approximately once a month. The next webinar in the series is titled “How Open Source Software Supports the Largest Computers on the Planet”, and will be presented by Ian Lee of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  The webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at 1:00 pm ET.


This talk will provide an overview of the work at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to re-vamp our open source project offerings, release processes, and engagements across the Department of Energy and the US government through efforts such as DOECode and Code.gov. We will also discuss ongoing work to make it easier for our staff to engage with open source communities, via both the creation of new projects and contributions to existing open source projects.  We believe that these experiences and insights may be useful to a wide range of developers of high-performance scientific software.
