Welcome to the HPC.NRW OpenMP Online Tutorial!
Using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the de-facto standard for parallel distributed-memory programming. MPI defines an API for portable and scalable process-based parallelism.
How to proceed through this tutorial?
This tutorial is targeted for novice HPC developers as an initial introduction to distributed-memory programming with MPI.
The tutorial is made up of several sections, each covering a separate stand-alone topic, but they are designed to be worked through in order.
Each tutorial consists of a short video, followed by a couple of quiz questions for a self control. Everything in the tutorial is platform-independent and works with every operating system with an OpenMP-compatible compiler available. Although most examples are written in C/C++, the fundamental concepts also work with Fortran.

Who created this tutorial?
The initial online course is based on the in-person MPI courses developed at the IT Center of RWTH Aachen University. The speaker is Dr. Marc-André Hermanns from RWTH Aachen University. Marc-André works at the university's IT center and has been an active member of the MPI Forum for many years.
This session provides a brief introduction of distributed-memory programming and
This session introduces basic concepts and terminology of MPI.
This session provides an introduction into the point-to-point communication paradigm as defined by MPI.
