    • Thor is well known for making short the processing of billions of records, and this promotes the tendency to use brute force in its deployment.

    • Making full use of Superfiles to make order of magnitude improvements to build times on THOR. (plus fringe benefits)

  3. Lorraine Chapman, Consulting Business Analyst, HPCC Systems - Watch Recording
    • In 2015, HPCC Systems was an accepted organization for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) taking on 2 students involved in this program. However, we had the bandwidth to support more students and so the HPCC Systems summer internship program was born. Four students joined the program in 2015 and four more in 2016. We will apply for GSoC and run our intern program again in 2017. Hear how the programs work, how projects are identified and find out about student successes on these programs.
