13:30—15:00 Led by: Steve Tuecke | workshop materials

We will introduce the Globus platform and describe how you can use Globus services to deliver unique data management capabilities in your applications. This will include:

  • Overview of use cases: Common patterns like data publication/distribution, orchestration of data flows, etc.
  • Overview of the Globus platform: Architecture and brief overview of available services
  • Introduction to the Globus Transfer API: Make your first call and move data with Globus
  • Introduction to the Python SDK for using Globus Auth and Transfer

You will use a Jupyter notebook to experiment with the Globus Transfer API, using it to manage endpoints, transfer and share files. We will also demonstrate a simple, yet fully-functional, application that leverages the Globus platform for data distribution and analysis.

We will introduce the Globus Auth API and demonstrate how it is used in a sample data portal. You will learn how to register an application with Globus Auth, authenticate using Globus Auth's OpenID Connect API, and access various authentication and authorization functions via sample Python scripts. We will also demonstrate how to directly access files from an endpoint using the Globus Connect HTTPS Endpoint Server.
