On Friday 2nd March the VIDaaS Project will be staging a joint workshop with our colleagues from the DataFlow Project at the Saïd Business School in Oxford. The day will run from 10:30 am until 5pm, and feature demonstrations of the database-as-as-service software developed by the VIDaaS Project and the DataStage software that forms the centrepiece of the DataFlow Project. Delegates will also get to look at the DataBank data repository system that Oxford is introducing, and hear about the cloud infrastructure that the University has built – partly in order to host the outputs of VIDaaS. There will also be plenty of time to ask question, discuss developments, and get to know the other delegates.
In the afternoon the workshop will split into two groups – a user-focused break-out, and a smaller technical session for those interested in learning how to install the software in their own institution or contributing to future development and customization.
If you’re interested in attending, please register at http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/event/2804728017. The workshop is completely free, and the venue is immediately opposite Oxford Rail Station, so you won’t even need to walk past any dreaming spires on your way there.
