October 9, 2023 – for researchers and sysadmins
9:30—10:00 registration/check-in

We will provide an overview of the Globus platform features, and demonstrate several data management features. Serving as an introductory session suitable for new users, we’ll use the Globus web app to show data transfer and sharing, use of Globus Connect Personal for laptop/desktop access and introduce the use of Globus Command Line Interface for interactive and scripting. This introduction will provide important context for subsequent sessions.

11:00—11:15 break

We will present various use cases for applying the Globus data sharing capability, and discuss use of service accounts for automating data access and transfer tasks.

12:00—13:00 lunch

We will introduce the various Globus approaches available for automating data flows, including the command line interface (CLI), the Globus Timer service and the Globus Flows service. You will experiment with simple CLI commands and a Jupyter notebook to automate file transfers and permissions management on shared datasets.

14:30—14:45 break

We will provide a brief introduction to the Globus platform-as-a-service for developers, with emphasis on understanding the security model; and will demonstrate how to access Globus services via APIs for integration into custom research applications. We will use Globus Python SDK and Jupyter Notebooks to understand use of the API.

15:30—16:30 We will be available for 1:1 discussions and consultation about specific use cases.
