As a general-purpose programming language with a growing user-base amongst data scientists, Python is increasingly used for data analysis and machine learning applications at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ). In this course we will introduce the different high performance computing ressources provided by LRZ and by demonstrating several techniques and best practice examples, we will empower participants to use Python effectively on these systems.
