🎙️Podcast – The Lattice Boltzmann Method
Based on his fascination for GPU and 3D graphics, Eugen initiated the development of a prototypical GPU-accelerated program for simulating flows as early as 2007 during his studies in aerospace at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
Following his studies, he brought the software prototype into an existing spin-off company, which he had previously helped to build through his expertise in HPC and GPU. With the experience he gained, he started his own business in 2013 to develop pacefish® to market maturity as a highly efficient tool for simulating fluid flows. In 2016, he then founded Numeric Systems GmbH.
📝 How to read research papers
Great set of slides that walk through strategies and tools to use for reading papers — especially long technical papers. The tools outlined here will also help you keep track of key points so you don't forget them.
💻 Engineering Tool of the Week – FEniCSx
FEniCSx is a popular open-source computing platform for solving partial differential equations (PDEs). FEniCSx enables users to quickly translate scientific models into efficient finite element code. With the high-level Python and C++ interfaces to FEniCSx, it is easy to get started, but FEniCSx offers also powerful capabilities for more experienced programmers. FEniCSx runs on a multitude of platforms ranging from laptops to high-performance clusters.

The Model Thinker: What You Need to Know to Make Data Work for You
Work with data like a pro using this guide that breaks down how to organize, apply, and most importantly, understand what you are analyzing in order to become a true data ninja.
From the stock market to genomics laboratories, census figures to marketing email blasts, we are awash with data. But as anyone who has ever opened up a spreadsheet packed with seemingly infinite lines of data knows, numbers aren't enough: we need to know how to make those numbers talk.
