Kevin was a mentee of OpenHPC since the summer of 2022. Mentored by Reese Baird, he set up high-performance computing clusters in virtual machines through the use of Vagrant, and created and studied benchmarking on HPC clusters. Then he set out to utilize NVIDIA's HPC container maker to create scripts that could be converted to both Docker and Singularity files, providing GPU and TensorFlow support to OpenHPC's base image. Through the OpenHPC community, he attended the SC22 SuperComputing conference to learn more about HPC in the professional world. Kevin would like to give thanks to Reese, project lead Christopher Simmons, and the other maintainers of OpenHPC for introducing him to the world of high-performance computing. It was amazing working with my mentor Reese and OpenHPC! I had weekly meetings with my mentor where we discussed HPC in the context of industry, research, and open source, as well as checked in on my work with containers and benchmarking. Additionally, the OpenHPC community was very welcoming; I met many of them in person at SC22, as well as swinging by the booth and attending their talk.
