Curating a Training Curriculum for Effective Use of Cloud Platforms in Research Workflows

Cloud computing is impacting every sector of computing and data as the scale and rapid deployment of new capabilities make these platforms more compelling, and yet the US Research and Education (R&E) community is not currently able to take full advantage of these platforms. A major impediment is the lack of suitable and sustainable training for the research support workforce. Navigating the multitude of training opportunities for cloud computing has proven challenging for institutions and research groups, both because current offerings are highly segmented and vendor specific, and as well because the materials are largely focused on enterprise IT staff and use-cases. We propose a Birds of a Feather session to bring together a community of research computing and data professionals to discuss how a community could gather and curate a shared set of training materials tailored to the R&E community, and develop online cohort-based training leveraging these materials.
