Training & Events

Below you will find training and events of interest to the advanced research computing community. This is a mixture of events hosted by UBC and external partners.

Upcoming Events

ARC Sockeye Workshop - Virtual Environments on Sockeye

Virtual environments are tools that offer researchers the ability to create separate, isolated software environments in a system, to install software with its own dependencies.  Virtual environments are useful on HPC systems when specific software or software packages are needed, and not readily available as a pre-installed module.

In this workshop, we will introduce virtual environments, discuss use cases, and explain how to use tools such as Conda and Virtualenv as part of your research workflows on UBC ARC Sockeye.

Past Events

UBC ARC Mathworks Training

During this hands-on workshop, you will be introduced to parallel and GPU computing in MATLAB for speeding up your applications and offloading computations.  By working through common scenarios and workflows, you will gain an understanding of the parallel constructs in MATLAB, their capabilities, and some of the issues that may arise when using them.
