  • Do you have MATLAB, R, Python and other scripts you are trying to integrate?
  • Do you have workflows you are trying to scale on large-scale and cloud-based computational resources?
  • Have you taken one of the WorDS Boot Camps and you want to further improve your hands-on experience?
  • Are you a Kepler user who is looking for additional hands-on help to develop your application and sharpen your skills?

WorDS Center Workflow Hackathons are made for you and your application! Come and taste the spirit of collaborative development while you focus on the workflows for your applications.

Centered around your individual usecases, we will help you hack workflow-driven applications from building a prototype of your workflows from scratch, running your workflows on HPC/cloud/cluster resources, making your workflow products reproducible through provenance tracking, and wrapping your workflows as web applications.

About the Day

The day will start with a crash course on workflow concepts and workflow systems. Each attendee will then focus on building the workflow for an application of his/her choice . Attendees without predefined usecases will be provided a list of workflows to choose from at varying complexity levels of basic, moderate and advanced.

Who should attend?

Anyone who is responsible from building workflows and computational pipelines for data and computational science, evaluating workflow systems as a means to conduct reproducible research, and is curious to learn more about what workflows help with are welcome to attend.
