- Practice sessions were too short. Instead of full day practice, intermediate practice would give the audience more chance to catch the course. In my point of view: I lost my motivation, when I couldn"t do the exercises on time.» (Unsatisfactory)
- I even do not know how to start the exercise.» (Unsatisfactory)
- I find it to to much practical elements and to much focus on actual commands in mpi and its argumant. When programming in parrallell you will google it anyway as you can not remember the arguments.» (Satisfactory)
- The time-slots for practice were to short» (Satisfactory)
- The course was very good in general, however a bit too compressed, especially for finishing up all the exercises during the time given.» (Satisfactory)
- Could have been more time devoted to the practical excersises.» (Good)
- I would love this course could be longer, so there would be more time for excercises » (Good)
- To my opinion time scheduled for practical exercises was not sufficient to fulfill all the tasks. Probably it would be reasonable to remove from lectures part of the material which is not directly covered by practical exercises. That can give extra time for coding.» (Good)
- Mycket bra med de små övningarna som gjorde att man fick testa lite på egen hand med möjlighet till hjälp.» (Excellent)

- More advanced examples or alternatively examples in realistic problems. I found the course too simple for my needs.» (Satisfactory)
- Maybe a better way to have the course is to have a serial program and during the course rewrite it to a mpi program. » (Satisfactory)
- I would have liked more examples on how to "think parallel" when building applications, and less syntax - but then again, it was a beginners" course.» (Good)
- I would have liked more short and easy exercises, maybe exploring some further features of mpi instead of having an entire day (the last) on a big project.» (Good)
- För min egen del hade jag gärna sett någonting om Finita Element men i övrigt var innehållet utmärkt.» (Excellent)

- But I have worked a bit with MPI.» (To easy)
- I consider that learning MPI requires practice on time. Surely, the level of the course was enough well.» (Good)
- If the material had been handed out earlier, it could have been easier to prepare.» (Good)
- Appropriate level for a hands-on crash-course on the MPI API, good introduction to running stuff on the C3SE cluster.» (Good)
- but it is kind of stressful to have it in three days. » (Good)
- But I think this was because of my little experience in this area» (To hard)

- Recomendation to a book or some other more complete material would have been good.» (Satisfactory)
- A few example codes would probably boost the understanding» (Satisfactory)
- I would have liked an electronic copy.» (Satisfactory)
- It would be good to have more examples of the code in the handouts. That would help to handle practical exercises.» (Good)
- More examples would have been even better» (Good)

- Explanations given were sometimes confusing. I know there are better ways to explain these concepts. For example explicit examples should be provided after each new MPI command given (not just the syntax).» (Satisfactory)
- A bit too slow sometimes.» (Good)
- En stor eloge till Joachim!» (Excellent)
- Excellent expertise of the lecturer in the subject. Clear, logical and enthusiastic presentation of the material. Extensive answers to all questions. The lecturer and his assistants from C3SE have been very helpful during the practical part of the course. » (Excellent)
- I think the lectures where very clear and the speaker was very committed in teaching the subject.» (Excellent)

More/less hands-on

- Everything was great. Apploads to Joachim Hein and all organizers.»
- I did only take part in the first day of the course, this due to that I had to stay home with sick child the other days.»
- Many thanks to the lecturer! Great course »
- Hands on was excellent but more realistic examples would be more useful. Biggest problem was that no examples were provided after each MPI command. Mainly an explanation and a syntax was provided. On the internet however the best cites include the explanation, the syntax and a short code example using that command (similar to what Matlab documentation also does). That would have been much more helpful.»
- Thank you very much for this valuable organisation. I really liked it although I didnt participate into the all sessions.»
- It would have been nice to have more information about the systems available for research. Can lund people use beda? I would have loved to see the actual machine as well. Is ther international computers that we also can use? What is the level of processing and data of an application where mpi would be benificial compare to ordinary programs.»
- I need hand by hand coding exercise!»
- More examples, example codes»
- Perhaps more example codes could have been included in the course material.»
- I would like to say that the lectures were delivered in an excellent way , and never letting us to go off track, made it really interesting. »
- Utmärkt kurs! Skulle gärna se en fortsättningskurs.»
- More example codes»
- More short exercises that can be finished at home in case the timetable is too tight. »
