Developing, Configuring, Building, And Deploying HPC Software

In May 2016, Barry Smith presented a webinar titled "Developing, Configuring, Building, and Deploying HPC Software" in the series Best Practices for HPC Software Developers on the IDEAS Productivity website.


How To Configure Software

What Is Software Configuration?

Abstract: The process of developing HPC software requires consideration of issues in software design as well as practices that support the collaborative writing of well-structured code that is easy to maintain, extend, and support. This presentation will provide an overview of development environments and how to configure, build, and deploy HPC software using some of the tools that are frequently used in the community. We will also discuss ways in which these and other tools are best utilized by various categories of scientific software developers, ranging from small teams (for example, a faculty member and graduate students who are writing research code intended primarily for their own use) through moderate/large teams (for example, collaborating developers spread among multiple institutions who are writing publicly distributable code intended for use by others in the community).
