The Raspberry Pi platform removes the cost barriers long associated with introducing education and research in high performance computing (HPC) into smaller institutions. A Raspberry Pi consists a credit card sized computer that contains an ARM-based process and runs a full Linux operating system. With it, one can construct miniature cluster computers, hadoop clusters, create software environments analogous to those found at major supercomputing centers, and deploy applications that are also run on larger Linux computers. In this workshop we will provide detailed information on how to use the Raspberry Pi platform to teach linux cluster administration, parallel computing, and big data concepts (Hadoop, PIG, …). At the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to download images provided by an effort lead by NCAR to deploy their own Raspberry Pi clusters.
