The purpose of this workshop is to learn how to develop a MuG Tool to make available any software application to the MuG virtual research environment (MuGVRE). The course will cover:
- The MuG Tool API, for packing the application code into a MuG Tool.
- The COMPSs programming model, for the parallelisation of tasks within the Tool that dynamically can scale on the available virtualized resources.
- The configuration and testing of the MuG Tool for the MuGVRE.
- The documentation and packaging of the Tool in a repository for easy deployment.
The workshop is aimed to bioinformaticians and software developers interested in integrating their tools into the MuGVRE.
