Wednesday Learning Labs (2:00-2:40pm)
Table Numbers and Topics for this time slot
  1. Kubernetes for Fun and Science
    With Kubernetes establishing itself as the de facto container orchestration platform in the cloud, what happens when the gateway community adopts Kubernetes into their projects. Meet fellow developers, designers, and community builders to talk Kubernetes for science and what the availability of open platforms means for gateway sustainability. Hosted by Rion Dooley.
  2. Code and Coffee
    We get it. Sometimes you just need a fix. Take a break from the program to grab some coffee, knock out some code. No host, but open to anyone.
  3. Jupyter(Hub) in Gateways
    This is a discussion about all things related to the jupyter project, including integrating JupyterHub with Gateways, running Jupyter Notebooks as jobs, and deploying JupyterHub on Jetstream with Kubernetes. Hosted by Andrea Zonca and Julia Looney.
  4. Gateways for classroom education
    Let's talk about the challenges of focusing on education in a research oriented world. Hosted by Mark Perri.
  5. Research Software Engineers - Challenges of a career path in academia
    One major concern in achieving software sustainability is improving career paths for RSEs, research programmers and/or facilitators - whether they are staff or faculty at academic institutions or national labs. Software contributions are generally not a factor in career advancement in academia. While several initiatives and projects such as US-RSE show the interest in changing the culture in academia to support career paths, the interaction between these initiatives is still sparse. This could be a good time to join forces and use the momentum of the diverse communities thinking about similar challenges. Hosted by Sandra Gesing.
About Learning Labs
“Learning Labs” may be one of several styles of impromptu learning:
  • Pop-up BOFs (Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions)
  • Mini Hacks
  • Coffee-Break Conversations
We will have three 45-minute periods devoted to your ideas. Round tables will be set up for you to meet with others and discuss the topics of your choice. Here are the ways you can get involved:
  1. Propose a topic that you’d be willing to host. (You don’t have to be an expert, just interested!)
  2. Find a topic that interests you, and join a table!
Submit your topic with this Google form by Tuesday, September 24 at 7pm Pacific: https://forms.gle/1Th5svq13VeKreLE7.

We’ll announce when and where the first round are happening by Tuesday morning on Sched, second round on Wednesday morning. We may be able to insert additional topics after the deadline if space is available.
