About the Webinar

CyVerse's Lead trainer Jason Williams walks us through VICE, CyVerse's Visual and Interactive Computing Environment. VICE is a part of the Discovery Environment that enables you to do your work in integrated development environments such as Jupyter Notebooks, RStudio, and containers. This webinar will be especially helpful to researchers and educators who previously used CyVerse's virtual machine images in our Atmosphere cloud resource. If you've got a cloud addiction or one is starting to form, VICE may be the virtuous habit you need.

What You'll Learn

  • What VICE is and why you would want to use it (for research and teaching)
  • Launching and using a VICE application
  • Improving your reproducibility by customizing VICE
