Developing Foundational Open Science Skills

Foundational Open Science Skills (FOSS) is a novel, camp-style training designed to prepare principal investigators and their teams, both new and established, to meet the growing expectations of funding agencies, publishers, and research institutions for scientific reproducibility and data accessibility. In this talk, I'll cover the history of CyVerse, our FOSS workshop series, the use of containerized software in cyberinfrastructure, open source research software, and actually doing cloud native science with open data on public resources. For a more full experience sign-up for a free CyVerse account using your institutional email address before the talk:
