How it works

The cluster utilized the SLURM scheduler and OpenMPI.

What I learned

What's next for the Raspberry Pi Cluster

It's still up and running! I've thought about how building one could be used as a hands on exercise to teach networking. This project is very accessible, and its construction could be boiled down into something a team as young as 12 or 13 could accomplish it.
