The information was helpful, though not what I had in mind. Dr. Chen delivered the information clearly.

The instructor is great. He knows the topic and explains it well.
However, the class did not work for me because I did not realize that Python on the HPC would be presented. I want to learn programming in Python.

The presentation was fine and engaging.
My objectives for using parallel processing would not benefit from the MPI technology presented. Simply stated, my application uses a single machine supporting multiple cores and multiple threads that share the same memory address space, rather than messaging among multiple machines with separate memory address spaces. In summary, I cannot use the MPI facility.
