Title: Open Source Software for HPC

Abstract

The computational power of HPC is beyond our comprehension when we hear that 5 quadrillion computations can happen in a matter of seconds, or that machine learning is changing the way everything works. But none of that happens in a vacuum, and the teams behind the scenes—the developers of the hardware, the operating systems, the data transfer protocols, and the applications themselves—are the unsung heroes of a world where faster is better and you'd better hope there's no bug in the software or the hardware to slow you down. HPC is most successful when all these aspects work together seamlessly. The stories that follow are a tribute to the hardworking teams behind the scenes.
