Hello dear passengers, greetings from the beautiful city of Bologna!
Before the fancy parts of the project,
Let me tell you about my story…
I was just a simple Electronics and Communication Engineering student at İzmir Institute of Technology.
Until I met with some ancient words:
Fortune favors the bold.-Latin Proverb
I started to ask myself “Why shouldn’t we / I?”,
Then we just started to help the village children that were in need.
Also, we started the green campus project to protect the environment.
“Small things can change the world!”
One day, I just asked that “Why shouldn’t I take the courses that I like from the Computer Science Department?” and my life has completely changed after I met with Deep Learning and High-Performance Computing.
Even microseconds are enough to save or lose a life, so that is why High-Performance Computing is important for me.
Obliviously, the last question was “Why shouldn’t I apply for SoHPC?” and, the fortune favored me.
BOOM! I was at Bologna, CINECA. A dream came true!
In the first days of CINECA journey,
Besides learning new things while using the supercomputer,
And eating fancy Italian food,
The best part of the SoHPC is meeting with cool people and,
Having new awesome friendships around the world.
What you see is the only tip of the Iceberg.
Of course, tedious problems may happen in life, but never forget to:
“Get up, stand up and, don’t give up the fight!”-Bob Marley
That’s all folks!
Hope to see you in the next post!
Don’t forget to check all of my friends’ posts, I believe you will enjoy them.
To be continued...
