Many scientific application developers still use command-line tools and tools with diverse and sometimes confusing user interfaces for the different aspects of their development activities. In contrast, other computing disciplines have employed advanced application development environments, which have demonstrated considerable success in improving productivity, reducing defects, and reducing time-to-market. The Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform (PTP) combines tools for coding, static analysis, revision control, refactoring, debugging, job submission, and more, into a best-practice integrated environment for increasing developer productivity. Leveraging the successful open-source Eclipse platform, PTP helps manage the complexity of scientific code development and optimization on diverse platforms, and provides tools to gain
insights into complex code that is otherwise difficult to attain.

This tutorial will provide attendees with a hands-on introduction to Eclipse PTP, and will cover installing, configuring, and using PTP for developing scientific applications using a variety of languages and programming models.

Participants are requested to bring their own laptop.

Anyone interested is cordially invited to participate in this event.
