In addition to the in-person training sessions, we provide pre-recorded content for many of our sessions.

Visit the main training page for additional training information.

HiPerGator Account Training

All new HiPerGator users are required to take the HiPerGator Account training. Link and overview on this page.

Introduction to Research Computing and HiPerGator

Intended for new users, this training provides a general overview of the UF Research Computing facilities and basic usage of HiPerGator.

This training is available as a three-part series on the UFIT Training site: Play icon.png

Or as a recording of the most recent Zoom session:

You can download a copy of the slides used from here.

Introduction to the Linux Command Line

This session will lead participants through some exercises that go over basic Linux commands such as moving around the file system, making directories, moving and copying files, etc. We will also go over some of the applications you can use on your computer to connect to and move files to and from HiPerGator. This session is largely aimed at users who are new to the Command Line.

This session is available as a pre-recorded video:

The handout and files for the session are now located in a git repository here: https://github.com/UFResearchComputing/Linux_training

The handout can be downloaded as a PDF file.

The molecules folder used in the training is at /data/training/LinuxCLI/molecules.

For those wishing to use this training outside of HiPerGator, the molecules folder is part of the Software Carpentry Unix Shell training available in the data-shell.zip file on the setup page. This can be downloaded to you own computer and run using the Mac/Linux Terminal or MobaXterm terminal on Windows.

HiPerGator: SLURM Submission Scripts

In this session, participants will practice working with SLURM submission scripts using sample files. The training will cover the most common scheduler directives and how to tell SLURM the information it needs to run your jobs efficiently. Example scripts will be provided, though users are encouraged to bring their own scripts to work with. This session assumes a basic familiarity with the Unix command line and will be aimed at beginning to intermediate users. See the Introduction to the Linux Command Line Training for help with Linux.

This session is available as a pre-recorded video: This video is approximately 30 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

The files used in this video are on the Sample_SLURM_Scripts page and on the cluster in /data/training/SLURM/.

HiPerGator: SLURM Submission Scripts for MPI Jobs

This session will go into depth on the details of scheduling MPI jobs on HiPerGator. Efficiently running MPI applications requires an understanding of both how to specify the needed resources as well as the layout and properties of the available hardware. This session will provide examples from several commonly used applications and provide guidelines for users to optimize their own runs.

Running Graphical Applications on HiPerGator

Users can run applications with graphical user interfaces (GUI) on HiPerGator either using Open on Demand or using the gui module and submitting jobs from the command line.

This video provides and overview of Open on Demand, which offers many GUI applications: Play icon.png [5 min, 11 sec]

This video reviews launching additional GUI applications using the gui module to submit jobs from the command line: Play icon.png [5 min, 16 sec]

A recording of the most recent Zoom session, coving both Open on Demand and gui module is also available:

The GUI Programs page has additional information.

Running MATLAB on HiPerGator

Users walk through a hands-on examples using MATLAB at Research Computing. Participants will work with the MATLAB GUI, compiling code and submitting MATLAB jobs to the scheduler to run on the cluster.

This video is approximately 24 minutes and includes a demonstration. Play icon.png

Users should also review the Matlab page for additional information.

Jupyter Hub and Jupyter Notebooks for R, Python and More

This session covers using Jupyter Notebooks through https://jhub.rc.ufl.edu


For additional information on Jupyter Hub at Research Computing see the JupyterHub page.

Getting Started in AI

Image Classification with PyTorch in Jupyter on HiPerGator

This session in our Getting Started with AI series will introduce PyTorch for image classification using Jupyter Notebooks running on HiPerGator.

Users will have hands-on exercises covering the steps of preparing data, and training and validating a neural network model for image classification.

If you are unfamiliar with Jupyter Notebooks, we recommend watching the Jupyter training first.

This training is largely based off of the
