Why not come to a Code Clinic? We’re keen to hear from you.
Code Clinics are fortnightly supported sessions run by the RSE team and IT Services’ Research and Innovation IT (ITS R&I) team. They are open to anyone at TUoS writing code for research to get help with programming problems and general advice on best practices.
At each session, members of the RSE and/or ITS R&I teams will be available to review code, advise, troubleshoot, and suggest ways to improve your computational workflows.
HPC Drop-In sessions are providing assistance with HPC related user issues such as challenges in scaling an application from desktop to supercomputer. We are considering extending the number of our sessions to two or three weekly. These interactive sessions could provide a better interface with our users than our non-interactive ticketing system. These sessions are advertised on the HPC mailing list.
Alongside the HPC Drop-In sessions, we are also running one to one consultations to solve in depth user specific problems. These consultations can be booked via our webpage. If you are interested please visit the following link: https://students.sheffield.ac.uk/it-services/research/support.
The next LunchBytes session is from 13:30 on the 21st July.
Scientific workflows (for example in bioinformatics) often require several different scripts or pieces of software to be run and their outputs fed into each other. Ideally, we’d like to be able to understand the provenance of the output, without having to re-run the entire workflow every time a minor change is made to code or data. This is often difficult to achieve with bash or Python scripts (for example), but workflow managers can help.
LunchBytes are organised by and for the research software community at The University of Sheffield. If you’d like to curate a session on a topic or present something, get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - Or suggest topics on the jamboard.
Research IT Forum is primarily to engage the research computing community and share research carried out in specific departments. We also use the Forum to signpost new HPC resources. Previous Fora included GPU accelerated and AI/Machine Learning research, image processing and analysing human language. The recordings are available for all attendees. The next Forum is targeted for October.
Bessemer is now temporarily upgraded with 64 A100 GPUs. The resource is available for immediate use, however, it will be moved to Stanage (see below) in due course. For more information please visit https://docs.hpc.shef.ac.uk/en/latest/bessemer/GPUComputingBessemer.html#gpucomputing-bessemer.
Our new HPC facility, named Stanage, will allow access to ~12,000 cores and 64 GPU (A100). The facility will come online at the end of July/early August.
Research IT is providing a place for beginners or advanced users to expand their knowledge of HPC and different programming languages. The courses are part of the Doctoral Development Programme. For more information please visit our training registration web page (via VPN): https://crs.shef.ac.uk.
Git & GitHub through GitKraken workshop - from Zero to Hero!
Visit the links below for more information. These events are now fully booked, but you can join the waiting list in case any spaces become available. If you sign up for a course, please make sure you either attend or cancel your booking. Bookings can usually be cancelled via eventbrite.
The Sheffield RSE Team aims to collaborate with you to help improve your research software.
They can provide dedicated staff to ensure that you can deliver excellent research software engineering on your research projects.
The Research and Innovation Team within IT directly supports research, both academic and commercial. We provide large scale HPC systems, advice on everything from statistics to ML to data pipelines and training for both students and staff. Working with academics, our staff are embedded within research groups on both long and short term engagements.
