New year, new hackathon! The January 30–31 event was Computing’s 23rd hackathon and the 1st scheduled in the winter season.
Programming Models and Languages
Programming models and languages are essential for expressing our computational problems in ways that take best advantage of the massive capability of current and future computers at LLNL. Our research efforts extend and improve existing programming models, such as OpenMP and MPI. Using tools like the ROSE compiler technology and Babel, we’re researching new ways to transform, analyze, optimize, combine, and interoperate languages.

Jorge Castro Morales likes having different responsibilities at work. He says, “I’m honored to be working with a diverse team of multidisciplinary experts to resolve very complex problems on a daily basis.”
This year’s event included quick presentations on a range of topics, deep dives, a keynote speaker, and a panel discussion dedicated to the onboarding process.
For students interested in learning coding and computer technology, the Girls Who Code clubs in the Livermore middle and high schools are the place to be.
Bolstered by ergonomic stretching and exercise breaks, Computation’s 20th hackathon saw high turnout collaboration, experimentation, and fun.
FGPU provides code examples that port FORTRAN codes to run on IBM OpenPOWER platforms like LLNL’s Sierra supercomputer.
