Welcome to the Introduction to CloudLab Workshop!!!

Prior to attending the workshop, please make sure that you have completed the following preparatory steps:

Step 1: Software prerequisites

  • This workshop will use Python 2.7 and Jupyter Notebook. If you already have these installed, you can skip this step. If not, you can download a copy of Anaconda for Python 2.7 here and install it on your machine.

  • You will need to have access to a terminal that support SSH key generation. For MacOS X and Linux users, the default terminal is satisfactory. For Windows users, MobaXterm is recommended.

Step 2: Download workshop materials

  • Download the workshop materials
  • Unzip the downloaded file
  • Go into the unzipped directory and continue unzipping the file. Do not change the name of the unzipped directory.

Step 3: Set up geni-lib library to enable creation of CloudLab profiles via Python programming

  • Open up a terminal (or a command prompt for Windows users)
  • Go to the unzipped directory of the workshop materials
  • Type jupyter notebook. This will launch a Jupyter Server whose home page contains the contents of the workshop directory.
  • Click on file 0-preparations.ipynb to open this notebook. Execute all the cells as instructed in the notebook.
