Tutorial: Building Scalable Data Intensive Applications on the Cloud with Makeflow and Work Queue

In conjunction with the Science Cloud Summer School at Indiana University, August 1st, 2012.

This short course will provide a brief introduction to writing scalable applications using Makeflow and Work Queue, developed by the Cooperative Computing Lab at the University of Notre Dame. The course modules consist of a lecture that gives an overview of the software and applications, a tutorial in how to install and use the tools on FutureGrid, and a homework assignment of more challenging tasks to be completed during the week.
