Our team run a programme of workshops in the autumn and spring terms to help our users get up to speed with Linux and HPC. Workshop slides and online training materials are available on our ACRC training page.
A short recorded talk introducing key concepts related to HPC and the facilities available at University of Bristol is available: 'Introduction to HPC at University of Bristol' | Microsoft Stream. You can also download the Introduction to HPC at University of Bristol slides (PowerPoint with narration).
