First Developer’s Bootcamp

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.
