Join Lauren Mabe for a workhop on cloud-based parallel computing! The workshop will cover how to set up the parallel computing on a local computer and how to apply these skills to a cloud computing environment. These skills are useful for speeding up Monte Carlo analysis on large spatial datasets that would otherwise take a long time.
After this workshop learners should be able to:
– Understand the advantages of cloud computing
– Be able to set up and run a process in a cloud computing environment
– Identify additional resources
PREREQUISITES & TARGET LEARNERS:
No previous experience is necessary. Bring a laptop computer with R (and RStudio) installed. You will also need the doParallel, sp, raster, and spData packages for R
Registration is not necessary.
