The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a national scale distributed infrastructure for scientific computing. The OSG Connect service provides easy access to the resources that OSG provides. The OSG also offers training and tutorials for the scientists and researchers. As part of our training service we are offering an extended Software Carpentry workshop which augments instruction on basic Linux tools and programming with tutorials on using distributed high throughput computing workflows on the OSG. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic lab skills for computing like program design, version control, data management, and task automation.
Instructors: Mats Rynge, Emelie Harstad, Bala Desinghu, David Champion, Suchandra Thapa, Rob Quick
Helpers: Chris Pipes, Elizabeth Prout
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and other researchers.
Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a few specific software packages installed (listed below).
