June 2020 Highlights:

  • Champion Fellow Mentor: Yang Wang, PSC mentor, for Helen Kershaw, champion fellow
  • Code Performance and Scaling Training: Inaugural Training April 1, 2020.  Next session June 24, 2020.  Will commence effort to broaden training for non-traditional use cases shortly.  Would like to collaborate with RAS to assess impact of training on proposal success/rejection rates.
  • Ritu Arora - moved onto UT San Antonio, is she leaving XSEDE?
  • Cal State LA: Python 1 and 2, moved from March to April, and from in-person to virtual as flipped classroom.  Collaborative effort between CEE-BP (Akli, Gomez, Holly), ESTEO (Powell, Alameda) and CEE-WD (Cahill).  Collaborative development and delivery, with 6 sessions on two Saturdays, for Python 1 and 2.
  • SPICE Includes Data Science Training: very tailored intro to XSEDE and new user training, specifically for use of R and JupyterHub on Stampede 2, in May 2020 - delivered by Gomez (CEE-BP) and Alameda (ESTEO), in two sessions virtually.
  • Summer 2020:
    • IHPCSS2020 postponed to 2021
    • Collaboration with CEE BP for Advanced Computing for Social Change (prior to PEARC20) faculty and student workshops, for tailored introduction to XSEDE and New User Training
    • PEARC20 tutorials: what is actually happening?\
  • Fall 2020:
    • Anticipate virtual delivery continuing into 2021, likely until we have vaccine widely available and have achieved herd immunity
    • SC20: anticipating virtual or cancellation (not planning in-person attendance)
  • Impacts: 
    • Significant increase in effort for planning and preparation for virtual delivery
    • Significant decrease in expenditure in travel funds and participant support funds

Jan 2020 Highlights:

  • Virginia Trueheart taught "Python for Data Science" at Atlanta University Center Faculty workshop, Jan 9-10, 2020
  • Gearing up for reviews for IHPCSS 2020 applications - also deep into planning this summer's edition.  Trying to diversify our speakers and instructors as we plan the week.  Lars/John Cazes/Jay all involved.
  • Trying to measure interest in climate survey staff training topics as well as find folks to develop the content as appropriate
  • Code Performance and Scaling Training - lots of busy people involved: Lars, Mahidhar, Paul Rodriguez, Sergiu, Yifeng - trying to get underway. ( ECSS3-5582 - Getting issue details... STATUS

ESTEO Staff Activities in JIRA

Implementing a Flexible, Fault Tolerant Job Management System for Science Gateways

High level observations October 2018 February 2019

  • Transition of Champion Fellow Mentors from 2017 to 2018 appears to be partially stuck, old fellow mentors (that were successfully added to ESTEO) are no longer charging to ESTEO (except Suresh), new fellow mentors are not yet added
  • Potential new staff training opportunities, based on new resources:
    • Bridges-DL (available for research requests starting January 2019)?
    • Frontera
    • Should anything else be added to this list?

 

Highlighted staff activities

  • Ritu Arora - delivered introduction to Linux at Cal State LA as part of Cal State LA's "Direct Stem" initiative: http://www.calstatela.edu/centers/NASA_DIRECT_STEM with Jay Alameda Je'aime Powell
  • Not on ESTEO - Anirban Jana  Steve Lantz (Cornell) working to deliver advanced python at Cal State LA as part of Cal State LA's "Direct Stem" initiative: http://www.calstatela.edu/centers/NASA_DIRECT_STEM, with Roberto Camacho, University of Texas El Paso. (part 1 delivered, part 2 is this saturday)
    • Important initial observation: we need to formalize expectations and content development timelines, so that we can minimize problems on the ground with remote deployed instructors with (unfortunately) little in-person support (see "Trainer Professional Development" on last quarterly meeting, December 6th: XSEDE Quarterly Meeting - December 5 & 6, 2018)
    • Need to add new-user-training to agenda for Cal State LA, so that we can dedicate a session to working out connection and login issues and basic job submission issues (too much to expect intro to linux/unix to tackle this).
