It was preceded by an exhausting review of all planned ULHPC tutorials to ensure they are proposed in an updated / SLURM way.
As it was added on top the last months and the intense work to setup the new
iris cluster, I can testify we ended this week quite exhausted but also relieved to see the cluster and the school so successful.

I even found the time to add a new Big Data tutorial targetting the usage of Apache Spark on top of the platform :-) As always, the UL HPC School 2017 was the occasion for me to offer an updated view of the UL HPC platform, and its future in the context of the Euro-HPC project.
