Research In the Cloud" Software Carpentry Workshop

SAP UK offices near Heathrow, London, UK
Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.
This free hands-on workshop extends the typical curriculum of task automation, modular programming, and version control, with additional modules on cloud computing, including deployment, configuration, and management of virtual machines.
Participants will also learn about programming data-flow engines from Maxeler and how to access the public EGI Federated Cloud infrastructure for research.
There will also be a keynote on the HARNESS project and how it is helping to bring the power of heterogeneous accelerators to the cloud.
