Sharing your software with EGI and with the world
- Richard McLennan (EGI.EU)
The Applications Database (AppDB - http://appdb.egi.eu) is a registry and repository for various types of software tools and services that are available for EGI users. It makes software visible, searchable and usable within, and beyond the EGI community. Technical and research domain specific filters, tags, ratings and comments provide a structure for the content. Notification and broadcast services ensure that users and followers are informed about new software entries and updates made to registered items.
Since March 2013 AppDB enables software developers to share source code or executable software in the repository. Recent integration with Google's search engine makes content from AppDB highly visible for the Google search engine, and ultimately for all e-infrastructure users around the world.
This training session will introduce the rich service set of AppDB to attendees of the EGI Technical Forum. The training will include several use cases that attendees can implement during the session to register and increase the visibility and support of their own software using AppDB. The training will be conducted by members of IASA (Greece) and EGI.eu (Natherlands) and will be relevant to any software developer, platform developer, platform integrator, scientific programmer and software user who is affiliated with EGI, or with any other e-infrastructure in and outside of Europe.
