Building a Raspberry Pi Cluster

A workshop offered by the University IT and Data Center (HRZ)

What could be a better way to understand how an HPC cluster is built than building one yourself? We throw dozens of Raspberry Pis, Cables, SD-cards and stuff on a big table and see what happens.

At the end of the workshop you will have assembled a basic cluster, configured the network, and run the first MPI application on it, just like on one of its bigger siblings like Bonna or Bender.

Basic knowledge of the Linux/Unix shell is needed. Basic knowledge of Git is helpful.

Registration happens via eCampus. Simply join this workshop like any other eCampus course (Uni-ID required).
