Australian BOM System Administrator's Agenda and Presentations

From OPeNDAP Documentation

System Administrator's Workshop

Monday 15 October to Tuesday 16 October

This workshop targets the system administrator whose task is to setup a data service for interactive users, batch processes, and high level web services, that will access netcdf, hdf, or freeform data in a file system or SQL data in a database. The workshop will provide them with the information they need to install and configure Hyrax along with some background on available clients so they can test their servers and give basic advice to users.

All attendees are asked to bring a PC laptop and will be given a Linux virtual machine. If people want to use a Mac, they will have to be able to 'roll with the punches' when it comes to building code in that environment.

We will provide attendees with a binder for the lecture and hands-on info.
