PATC: Programming Distributed Computing Platforms with COMPSs

Date: 30/Jan/2018 Time: 09:00

Target group: Level: (All courses are designed for specialists with at least 1st cycle degree or similar background experience) INTERMEDIATE: for trainees with some theoretical and practical knowledge; those who finished the beginners course. ADVANCED: for trainees able to work independently and requiring guidance for solving complex problems.

Cost: There is no registration fee. The attendees would need to cover the expenses for travel, accommodation and meals.

Objectives

The objectives of this course are COMPSs is a programming model which is able to exploit the inherent concurrency of sequential applications and execute them in a transparent manner to the application developer in distributed computing platform. This is achieved by annotating part of the codes as tasks, and building at execution a task-dependence graph based on the actual data used consumed/produced by the tasks. The COMPSs runtime is able to schedule the tasks in the computing nodes and take into account facts like data locality and the different nature of the computing nodes in case of heterogeneous platforms. Additionally, recently COMPSs has been enhanced with the possibility of coordinating Web Services as part of the applications. COMPSs supports Java, C/C++ and Python as programming languages.

Requirements

Prerequisites: Programming skills in Java

Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes:  In the course, the COMPSs syntax, programming methodology and an overview of the runtime internals will be given. The attendees will get a first lesson about programming with COMPSs that will enable them to start programming with this framework.

A hands-on with simple introductory exercises will be also performed. The students who finish this course will be able to develop simple COMPSs applications and to run them both in a local resource and in a distributed platform (initially in a private cloud)
