Abstract

Software container solutions have revolutionized application development practices by enabling lightweight platform abstractions within the so-called "containers." Inspired by their wide-spread adoption by software developers, computational scientists are now embracing "containers" as a means to make computational research reproducible. In this one-day hands-on workshop, we will teach you how to use software "containers" for your computational research. You will learn about such container solutions as Docker, Singularity, and Shifter. You will work with these software solutions on your personal computer and Blue Waters, one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.
