A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

Free online course: Introduction to Grid Computing

Event Date: 
Mon, 2013-11-18 (All day) - Sat, 2014-01-18 (All day)

The EGI-InSPIRE offers via SURFsara a free online course on Grid Computing aiming to provide you with an understanding of the key concepts that underlie Grid technology and the role that Grid Computing can play in computationally intensive problems. It also aims to help researchers, regardless of their major (High Energy Physics, Biology, Earth observation, etc), to feel confident of their ability to use the Grid Infrastructure. This includes working with portals, workflow management systems and Grid middleware. By demonstrating practical examples on Grid, you will effectively develop their skills on accessing the grid resources, submitting workloads and developing applications on shared computational and storage grid resources.
