Computing’s newest internship program focuses on DevOps methodologies. The inaugural class of 2021 built a persistent data services provisioning application that will soon assist real Livermore Computing users.
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.
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.
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.
