Sep 17: Due to corona virus, we'll provide this course as an ONLINE course (using Zoom).
This course is dedicated to scientists and students to learn (sequential) programming with Fortran for scientific applications. The course teaches newest Fortran standards. Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test and understand the language constructs. This workshop provides scientific training in Computational Science, and, in addition, encourages the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.
(This course has the same content as the course offered in spring.)
Fortran syntax overview
- Basics - Program units - Dynamic data - IO
Obsolete features of Fortran
Multiple source files
