Automated Extraction of Metadata from Climate Simulations: Project Wrap-Up

1. Introduction As the project intensively included the processing of NetCDF datasets, this section serves as a brief background to the NetCDF format and its underlying data structure. NetCDF stands for “Network Common Data Form”. The NetCDF creators (Rew, Davis,

The best of both worlds

comparison between NumPy, Cython and Cython with the OpenCL solver

Sometimes, rejecting unfeasible ideas early enough is a crucial step towards actually solving a problem. In my quest to speed up the ocean modeling framework Veros, I considered the option of restructuring the existing pure Python code in order to

Which is the busiest node in the HPC cluster

What is a high-performance computer (HPC)? In simple terms, nowadays it is a cluster of innumerous ‘mini’ computers (nodes) interlinked by the same network. When a big calculation is submitted to the HPC, it will be fragmented into thousands of

What’s in a virtual screening dataset?

In my previous blogpost, I explained the main objectives of my project. During these weeks, I have focused towards the data analysis side of HPC rather than working on optimizing a program that runs on a super computer. I have been working to

Bringing visualisation to the web with Python and Bokeh

These days the world seems to run on data; from Google, to the NSA/GCHQ, to CERN, everyone seems to want more data, and be willing to go to great lengths to get it. However, once we have all of this

Python Public Service Announcement: Virtual environments

Snake oil - Python get it?...

Possibly fictitious excerpt from the Python Conference announcement of Virtual Environments. Most honorable Python developers, please raise your hand if you’ve ever gone from the highs of writing Python to the dreary comedowns of library version control. “Everybody raises hands”
