This was my second year instructing and helping the participants of OSG User School. We had a great applicant pool this year. OSG organinizes this school every year with a goal of teaching the basics of High through Computing, HTCondor (The Scheduler program) and running computational jobs on OSG.

Facts about OSG User School 2023

  • It was the 14th OSG User School
  • My thrid OSG user school and second time as an instructor. I was the instructor for two courses- Troubleshooting and Self-Checkpointing
  • 60 participants in total including 5-6 international participants from ACE (African Center for Excellence)

Things I enjoyed

  • In general I enjoy teaching. This year I got to teach a new course-self checkpointing. Preparing the slides and exercises for that helped me gain insight on how it can be applied to my own research work
  • It’s always a great experience to learn all the great researches. Some of them goes way over my head but every iteraction that I had with the researchers added a new chapter to my knowledge.
  • Madison is great in Summer and the Best western Hotel is very nice :blush:
