This lesson gives an introduction to high-performance computing with the Compute Canada network, first providing an overview of use cases for HPC and then a hands-on tutorial. Though some examples might seem specific to the Calcul Québec, all computing clusters in the Compute Canada network share the same software modules and environments.
