With agreement from the OOD steering committee, I would like to start organizing monthly calls about tips and tricks of OOD’s setup and usage. The idea is to have a monthly 1/2 hour call on the first Thursday of the month at 10am PT/ 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET.
The first call will be on 10/7 with topic “Create an Open OnDemand interactive app quickly from an existing template”. I’ll show some of our (University of Utah’s) growing list of OOD apps and how we set up a new one in minutes based on an existing VNC or server app. Then we can have a discussion on what other sites do to their apps and possibly grab a speaker for next time if there’s an interest in a specific solution.
Thanks and looking forward to starting sharing our OOD tricks.
We only have 19 people registered for the upcoming call on 11/4 at 1pm ET. Since we had ~100 at our last call I encourage everyone to register so you can connect to the call in time. The call link will be provided with the registration and is valid for the next year of the meetings.
Our next Tips and Tricks call will be on Thursday January 6th at 1pm ET.
Title: “Sid: an alternative OOD dashboard”
Speakers: Mike Reekie, Aday Bujeda, Harvard University
Our team is tasked with support of Social Science Researchers at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science. We are looking at how the experience of logging on to use interactive applications on the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Research Cluster can be made easier.
The features will highlight in the demo are:
one-click Quick Launch buttons which launch applications
Submission of support requests from within the interface
