TeraGrid 2007, Day 1

During most of the first day at TeraGrid 07, I was involved in the TeraGrid Institute tutorial, a kind of "TeraGrid for beginners" tutorial. We did a demo/tutorial using the LEAD Portal as a way of demonstrating how a science gateway can make effective use of TeraGrid, how the sum of TeraGrid is greater than it's individual parts. A screencast we developed in support of the tutorial is available.

Near the end of the day, I had a talk about the LEAD Portal for the "Build your own science gateway" tutorial. It's titled The LEAD Portal: An OGCE based weather science gateway, and you can see it below.

I talked with Kent Milfeld briefly afterward about the difficulty in supporting and managing production and development deployments.
