#6W3b - Build a BinderHub for hosting Reproducible Software in the Cloud (part 2)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Part 2 of this workshop. You will have to have attended Part 1 in order to participate in Part 2.

To participate in this workshop, you will need a Microsoft Azure Pass. Leave your email in the #binderhub-workshop channel on RSE Slack to be assigned an Azure Pass: https://ukrse.slack.com/messages/CMVP8U6FJ
Please do NOT use an .ac.uk domain email address to sign up if possible, as this might cause problems during deployment.

You will also need a Docker Hub account, please sign up here: https://hub.docker.com/signup

Familiarity with the command line is also useful.

BinderHub is a Cloud-based, multi-user server technology that captures the computing environment of a Git repository within a Docker image. It then provides an interactive browser from which code can be run in the environment under which it was developed without placing installation responsibilities on the user. A unique URL to this browser is generated making the software easily sharable with collaborators. BinderHubs can be built anywhere in the world and are Cloud-neutral. Building an in-house BinderHub is advantageous as it would facilitate the use of private repositories and make available a greater variety of computing resources - facilities which are not currently available on the public Binder service.

By harnessing the power of Cloud computing and building a BinderHub with expanded capabilities, scientific analyses can become more accessible and transparent to the wider community. BinderHubs can showcase the reproducibility of software as well as being a valuable teaching or demonstration tool.

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to deploy a BinderHub on Microsoft Azure and connect with others who have or are interested in doing so.
