An overview of how to build a Raspberry Pi supercomputer

with a focus on Raspberry PI units due to their popularity; the software
integration necessary to make them practical, what is necessary to
easily configure nodes, and issue commands for system operation; and
conclude with integrated numerical applications using the MPI interface.

On-Campus Free Parking (These parking lots are free after 5pm)

The Amherst Street/E51 parking lot is the best parking option. It
probably will have plenty of spaces. During the school year the lot
tends to be full, but tends to clear out after 6:30 or 7PM.

Due to the never-ending construction, Sloan's Hermann Garage is only
accessible via Main Street. It is a small garage without a gate, and
directly under the Sloan library.

All other MIT lots require permits after hours.

The closest public parking
is Kendall Center Green Garage, next to the Marriott Hotel. The entrance is
90 Broadway Street. For other parking options, see

All Cambridge parking meters use Passport by Phone:
This is active on all Cambridge metered parking spaces. Meters are free
after 8PM
