Open OnDemand: Linux Made Easy

Do you need the power of the SSCC's Linux servers, but find a command line interface intimidating? Are you a veteran Linux user who still misses the convenience of a graphical user interface? Or do you just want to log into Linstat without having to install anything?

Open OnDemand lets you log into the SSCC's Linux servers using your web browser and gives you a graphical "desktop" interface similar to a Mac or Windows computer. Or you can start a terminal and use it just like you've used Linux for years, including submitting jobs to Slurm. Using Linux has never been so easy.

In this workshop we'll go through the basics of using Open OnDemand. That won't take long, so there will be plenty of time for questions or covering related topics depending on the interests of the students attending. That could include anything from writing code to run on a Linux server to submitting jobs to Slurm.

You must be a member of the Social Science Computing Cooperative to use the SSCC's Linstat and Slurm clusters. SSCC accounts meant for class work do not have access to Linstat and Slurm; if you have a Z: drive (Linux home directory) when you log into Winstat you are a member of the Cooperative with an account meant for research.
