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 June webinar is titled Using the PSIP Toolkit to Achieve Your Goals – A Case Study at The HDF Group, and will be presented by Elena Pourmal (The HDF Group), Reed Milewicz (Sandia National Laboratories) and Elsa Gonsiorowski (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory). The webinar will take place on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 1:00 pm ET.


Productivity and Sustainability Improvement Planning (PSIP) is a lightweight, iterative workflow that allows software development teams to identify development bottlenecks and track progress toward goals to overcome them. In this talk, we present an overview of the PSIP methodology and toolkit, and describe how the HDF5 Group used PSIP to make improvements in three key areas of their software development process.
