Creating a developer pipeline by teaching gateway technologies Webinar

Category: N/A

The next SGCI Webinar will take place February 8, 2017, at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific (1 hour).


    Presented by: Marlon Pierce and Suresh Marru

Do you have trouble recruiting and retaining good gateway developers? Common challenges include the allure of the cutting-edge commercial sector, academic pay scales, and the specialized knowledge necessary for development. The Indiana University Science Gateways Research Center is attempting to turn this challenge into an opportunity by teaching Web-based cyberinfrastructure systems using concepts and technologies that will benefit students in their non-academic careers. Such distributed systems require knowledge of both classic and cutting-edge topics, such as microservices and “DevOps” practices. Meanwhile, the instructors can identify and connect with promising students while keeping themselves aware of important trends and technologies. This webinar will provide an overview of the material and concepts that we cover in the class, describe the student project assignments and class organization, and present outcomes and student feedback that we have gotten over the last two semesters. We will also discuss possibilities of making the course material and instruction available to other interested universities. Course information and material is available from

SGCI webinars are scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. Announcements will be sent several weeks before through SGCI's newsletter and on the SGCI's website.
