ICHEC is organising the "Scientific Programming Concepts" course on 19-20 February and 5-6 March 2018 at Chartered Accountants House, Dublin 2. It is an introduction to programming concepts aimed at scientists who have had minimal or no formal training in the subject. The focus is on C and Fortran yet the general concepts should be applicable to other programming languages. The main topics covered in this module includes: overview of computer architecture, the Linux shell, the imperative programming paradigm, data types & arithmetic operations, loops & conditional statements, object-oriented programming, standard libraries, compilation, C pointers and memory management, modern Fortran, scripting languages and an introduction to HPC concepts.

On successful completion of this module, students should be able to:

  • Gain an understanding of what constitutes a computer program and how it is constructed.
  • Comprehend written source code.
  • Write and compile basic programs in C/Fortran.
  • Make use of standard libraries in own code.

Participants enrolled in graduate programmes can attend the course and complete the required assignments for 5 ECTS credits.
