Subject: [HTCondor-users] Congratulations to Peter Couvares and our other fellow HTCondor users at LIGO!
In light of yesterday's announcement of
the confirmed discovery of gravitational waves, we should all extend our
hearty congratulations to our fellow HTCondor user Peter Couvares of the
LIGO Lab at Caltech, and his entire team at LIGO!
Peter's presentation at the 2015 HTCondor
Week conference, "LIGO Computing Optimization," was informative
and memorable, and has influenced my own thinking about IT's work with
our engineering partners in various important programs, and has helped
me to influence them in turn. It's available at this link:
The groundbreaking discovery of gravitational
waves will have Peter's presentation, the work which it describes, and
HTCondor itself as important footnotes in the history of physics and cosmology.
It's absolutely no coincidence that the presentation of Peter's work preceded
this announcement by less than a year.
Congratulations, Peter and the LIGO
