Thu, Sep 24, 2015
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys. The workshop itself will conclude at 1:30, with a half hour after that time for Q&A. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

Appery.io is one of a new breed of mobile app development services that reduces the time and effort needed to build an app by leveraging a web-based, visual "programming" environment. You lay out the screens with drag-and-drop components, tie buttons to actions with pre-populated, drop-down menus, and can even call remote web services by literally drawing lines between user-input components and database field names. Real-world apps can be built with no formal programming knowledge; even databases can be managed through a web-interface.

A Little More Advanced Linux

Tue, Sep 22, 2015
1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Edge: Workshop Room
This two-afternoon short-course extends the topics covered in The “Introduction to Linux” course. Familiarity with concepts covered in that introductory course is a pre-requisite for this course. Those not taking the Introduction to Linux course in the week before this advance course need to do a careful assessment of their knowledge of Linux. A review is a good idea.

The course very briefly reviews core concepts, and quickly moves to topics relating to automating more complex series of tasks, principles and points of configuration, troubleshooting, and system security. Submission scripts for high-throughput/high-performance computing schedulers such as SLURM and Condor (both used at Duke) are also introduced.

Course participants are required to bring their own laptop computer (you must have administrator access to this machine). Linux systems will be provided to participants, and they can use their laptops to access them. For people using a Windows laptops, please make sure that you have an SSH client installed (A free client can be downloaded and installed from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html)

Session #2: RDS (Database)
Session #3: ELB (Elastic Load Balancer)

Each session runs approximately 1.5 hours.

Participants must have their own laptops/workstations and must have administrative access to load programs onto their systems. Chromebooks are not recommended. (Programs to be used include PUTTY as an SSH client http://www.putty.org as well as the AWS CLI (Command Line Interface) https://aws.amazon.com/cli/.

Each participant must create and activate a new AWS account at least 2 days prior to attending this hands on lab. Send confirmation of your account set up completion to Tracy Crews at tlcrews@amazon.com. Tracy will then respond back with a code. This code is to cover your AWS Services consumed during the HOLs.

IMPORTANT:
* Do not use an existing account; create a new one for the hands on labs. You will be asked for a credit card but it will not be charged for any services used during the hands on labs.
* You will need to terminate all AWS Services used for the hands on labs. If you do not, charges may accrue that you are responsible for as the account owner.
