Trilinos Background

The Trilinos Project is an effort to develop algorithms and enabling technologies within an object-oriented software framework for the solution of large-scale, complex multi-physics engineering and scientific problems. A unique design feature of Trilinos is its focus on packages. Full details of Trilinos and links to package websites can be found at the Trilinos home page.

Thursday November 7 – Friday November 8

Trilinos Tutorial content creation sprint for interested Trilinos developers.

Here is a description of the activities scheduled for Thursday and Friday:

A high priority for the Trilinos User Experience capability area is the improvement of documentation and tutorials. Most Trilinos users are high-level programmers and most experienced users prefer to learn how to use a new tool by looking at an example, getting it to run, and then modifying it for their purposes. An expansion of the number and diversity of examples would have the single greatest impact on improving the Trilinos user experience.

Tutorials are another great way for users to learn how to use Trilinos, and good tutorials also depend on access to useful examples. Properly thought-out examples will improve our tutorials as well as the experience of users who prefer the self-taught approach.

Developing this type of material is often orthogonal to immediate project goals. This sprint is intended to be an opportunity for Trilinos developers to gather, spend a focused but reasonable amount of time devoted to the design and development of useful examples, and be available to each other for questions and discussion. Please join us. We will provide caffeine, various snacks, and coordinate (but not pay for) lunch.
