Developers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Yale University attended the first KBase developer’s bootcamp last week at Argonne National Laboratory. The intensive two-day training is intended for those who wish to become core KBase developers.
The bootcamp prepares developers to develop services in the KBase environment. Participants learned how to build a KBase runtime from scratch and how to build and deploy a KBase service. An in-depth introduction to the KBase cloud was also covered. Participants worked in teams on the development of a sequence similiarty service and a service that translates between different but equivelant taxonomic names.
The training was led by Tom Brettin, head of the KBase infrastructure team, and Bob Olson, a KBase senior software developer.
