SC12 in Salt Lake City

The description of the conference didn’t change – SC12 is still The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, but the location did: Salt Lake City in Utah, known to the historically inclined as the crossroads of the west. I had never been to SLC ever before but the last time I was in Utah was August of 2005 – a momentary step in and out of state border as part of Glenn Canyon Dam tour which, in itself, was part of a 3 day trip to the Grand Canyon.

SC11, fond memories from a fantastic nerd fest

Apart from what I could infer from the title, SC11, The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, that it was being held in a city that I had already been to once before (and had gained some familiarity, with at least parts of it) as part of The Great American Road Trip with dear friend Nils Stenvig (@UPBeaches), that the city had more than its fair share of friendly & familiar faces and that the event would offer the first of opportunities to put a face to many a names that I had known & interacted with for many years, I knew little about SC11 and of what I wanted from it.
