This webinar includes a complete walkthrough of all the features of DesignSafe from creating an account, logging in, exploring public data, learning to launch applications, sharing data, and exploring Jupyter Notebooks. Webinar video & course materials now available in the Training Archive.

DesignSafe: Jupyter, Python, and the Scientific Workflow
10/26/2016 - Archived Online

This webinar will be focused on using DesignSafe to build a Jupyter Notebook in Python. We will explore some existing notebooks, copy sample data into DesignSafe, load the sample data into Python and our Jupyter Notebook, and learn various graphing techniques to explore the data using the Matplotlib module. Webinar video & course materials now available in the Training Archive.

DesignSafe: Data Analysis and Plotting using Jupyter and R
11/09/2016, 2pm to 4pm EST

This webinar is designed as an introduction to R and the Jupyter environment. We will start with some sample data from DesignSafe and then using R, learn more about the data through some data analysis and simple queries. Finally, we will use different plotting techniques that R offers to visualize the data. Register for the webinar at www.designsafe-ci.org/learning-center/training/110916.

DesignSafe as a Tool: Integrating DesignSafe into your Research
01/25/2017, 2pm to 4pm EST

This webinar focuses on the rich feature set of DesignSafe and how those features can be integrated into your research workflow. We'll begin with an overview of the cyber infrastructure, then delve into the following:

  • Research Workbench - available tools and applications to support data analysis, simulation, and visualization
  • Data Depot - navigating, uploading and sharing data sets
  • Projects (new!) - introductory walkthrough, setting up/collaborating on projects
  • Jupyter Notebooks - interacting with your data and launching applications
