In this introductory course we will give an overview of the hardware and software services provided by the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) with a focus on supercomputing (HPC) as well as machine learning (ML) applications. The course opens with a (optional) introduction to GNU/Linux and a how-to of working with remote machines (using SSH). The subsequent combination of lectures, demo and hands-on sessions provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently utilize the LRZ supercomputing and cloud infrastructure for their own projects.
