Academic Computing Drop-in Sessions for Students and Staff

February 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Do you have questions or issues related to academic computing at UoR and can’t find the answer in our documentation? Are you finding the Linux systems tricky to navigate or do you have any questions about them? Or perhaps you’d like us to show you in person how some things work?

We are here to help! Come to one of our face to face drop-in sessions, where we will be around to offer informal help around all things academic computing related. Our sessions run every other week on Wednesday afternoons, see details for time & location below for the upcoming sessions. No appointment needed!

More sessions will be added continuously.

What topics can I seek help for?

The sessions are aimed to help with research computing related questions and problems, focused on our Linux platforms. Here are some example topics (the list below is not exhaustive):

  • Logging in and using our research computing servers (RACC, NX, arc-ssh)
  • Loading and using research software on the cluster
  • Interactive computing and batch jobs on the cluster
  • Python environments and packages
  • Linux command line computing
  • Compiling and running research code

Can’t make the sessions?

If you’d like assistance in any of these topics or related issues but can’t make the sessions, please raise a ticket (report an incident) through the IT Self Service Portal.
