Moving applications to complex architectures through collaborative hackathons
Abstract:
Porting or developing applications for complex architecture such as hybrid GPUs can be difficult to get started. The initial steps or fraught with bugs and lack of familiarity with frameworks and hardware. This talk will discuss how a collaborative sprint can be used to accelerate the initial port to a new architecture. Collaborative hackathons have been successfully used as a training device for porting applications to OLCFs supercomputers like Titan and Summit Dev. These events give developers an opportunity to sprint through early porting pains and gain rapid familiarity with new computing tools, increasing the likelihood that the application will be ported successfully after the training event ends.
