What I learned during Summer of HPC
I spent 8 weeks in Bologna (Italy) during my summer for SoHPC.
It was a great experience to do for multiple reasons :
First and foremost, I discovered a new country : Italy ! It’s always an awesome experience to uncover new traditions and a new culture.
Then I learn a completely new computer science field : High Performance Computing and the architecture of supercomputers. That was particularly fun to do as I was helped by some super talented people who could guide me.
However, it was also a stressful experience: looking for an apartment in a foreign country online, taking a leap into the unknown… I hope I won’t get grey hair
I would recommend doing SoHPC for everyone with a minimum knowledge of computer science, it’s a rewarding experience !
