Would you like to learn how to write programs that can scale up to
hundreds or thousands of machines?
This tutorial will provide an introduction to writing scalable
programs using Makeflow and Work Queue. These tools are used at Notre
Dame and around the world to attack large problems in fields such as
biology, chemistry, data mining, economics, physics, and more. Using
these tools, you will be able to write programs that can scale up to
hundreds or thousands of machines drawn from clusters, clouds, and
This tutorial is appropriate for new graduate students, undergraduate
researchers, and research staff involved in computing in any
department on campus. Some familiarity with Unix and the ability to
program in Python, Perl, or C is required.
The class will consist of half lecture and half hands-on instruction
in a computer equipped classroom. The instructors are Dinesh Rajan
and Michael Albrecht, developers of the software who are PhD students
in the CSE department.
