Coding Sprint, Experimenter Tutoring and Operations Hands-On

The joint software coding sprint, experimenter tutoring session, and operations hands-on-with-GENI session is an informal session where aggregate and tool developers will discuss software details, experimenters will run though GENI tutorials or ask questions of the GPO for help running experiments, and GPO operations staff will help site ops/admins folks with anything they're interested in.


Thursday, 2:30pm - 5:30pm

Session Leaders

Developers: Sarah Edwards, Aaron Helsinger, GENI Project Office

Experimenters: Niky Riga, GENI Project Office

Operations: Josh Smift, GENI Project Office

Agenda / Details

This software development session provides an opportunity for GENI engineers to collaborate in real time on a particular software or documentation issue. The topic will be selected well in advance of the conference, based on need and key party availability. Likely topics this time include stitching, achieving a common user experience across aggregates, supporting common GENI services, and other topics that arise at the Aggregate Developers' Topics session.

The GPO will also hold a tutoring session for GENI experimenters, where experimenters can come and work on various online GENI tutorials. The list of available tutorials will be advertised in advance of the GEC. The GPO will answer questions and provide assistance. Experimenters with an idea they want to work on are encouraged to come do so in the same room, so that they can have support from the on site GPO staff and other experimenters.

GPO operations staff will also be available to help GENI ops/admin folks who'd like a hand getting set up with GENI credentials, the Omni command-line tool, etc. This can be useful if you're running a GENI aggregate, so you can create a slice and some slivers, and test for yourself whether the aggregate manager is working like you expect. We'll also be happy to discuss any other topics of interest to the ops/admin community.

Developers Coding Sprint Topics

The actual topics will be dictated by the people in the room and their concerns, but we anticipate discussing topics first raised at the Aggregate Developers' Topics session.
