This tutorial aims to provide attendees a thorough introduction and overview of the OpenHPC community project (http://openhpc.community). Formalized under the Linux Foundation in 2016, OpenHPC is a collaborative project comprised of over 30 members from academia, research labs, and industry. OpenHPC is focused on providing HPC-centric package builds for a variety of common components in an effort to minimize duplication and provide a platform to share configuration recipes from a variety of sites. The tutorial will be organized into two primary phases: (1) a lecture phase highlighting currently available software components, packaging conventions and hierarchical modules, integration test suite, and building block nature of the project, and (2) a live demonstration/walk-thru of a bare-metal cluster installation using OpenHPC repositories and multiple cluster-building recipes. After installation, attendees will then be able to login to the installed clusters to gain interactive experience with the development environment and to run example jobs through the resource manager(s).
