Held virtually on July 15, our fifth annual Developer Day featured lightning talks, a technical deep dive, “quick takes” on remote-development resources, presentations about career paths, and a career development panel discussion.
Supported by the Advanced Simulation and Computing program, the open-source Axom project focuses on developing software infrastructure components that can be shared by HPC applications running on diverse computing platforms.
Computer scientist Vanessa Sochat isn’t afraid to meet new experiences head on. With a Stanford PhD and a jump-right-in attitude, she joined LLNL to work on the BUILD project, Spack package manager, and other open-source initiatives.
The RADIUSS (Rapid Application Development via an Institutional Universal Software Stack) project aims to lower cost and improve agility by encouraging adoption of our core open-source software products for use in institutional applications.
Computing relies on engineers like Stephanie Brink to keep the legacy codes running smoothly. “You’re only as fast as your slowest processor or your slowest function,” says Brink, who works in CASC. By analyzing a legacy code’s performance, Brink and her team can reduce the amount of time it takes to run and allow for more critical science to be accomplished.
CTO Bronis de Supinski discusses the integrated storage strategy of the future El Capitan exascale supercomputing system, which will have in excess of 2 exaflops of raw computing power spread across nodes.
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.”
