T-shirt race stragglers aim for student cluster compo crown

Colorado Buffaloes DID breeze through the supercomputing bits

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

ISC 2012 We catch up with the University of Colorado team (profile here) on the last day of the 2012 ISC Student Cluster Competition (aka Hell on the Elbe) in Hamburg.

Even though they were the last team to get started on the challenge (owing to their lackadaisical approach to the opening t-shirt scramble), they feel good about the competition and their chances.

Why shouldn’t they? They’re the most experienced team in the competition, and they breezed through HPCC, LINPACK, and various HPC applications that made up the challenge this year. Also, they weren’t thrown by either of the two surprise applications (WRF weather forecasting and Gromacs molecular modeling). In this short video, we talk to the team and get their final thoughts on the competition, the trip, and their chances. ®
