The DIRAC Interware Project provides a software framework and develops ready to use components to build distributed computing systems of arbitrary complexity. The solution is universal and covers both workload and data management tasks. The Project was originally developed for LHCb – one of the 4 experiments at the LHC collider which stays its principal user. Therefore, a special care is taken to ensure massive operations with user computational tasks and data.
In this contribution we will give an overview of the Project, its main components and interfaces. We will present recent updates of the DIRAC software such as migration to Python3, new service APIs, software deployment, support for new authentication and authorization frameworks and other topics. We will focus on practical aspects to help users in finding the most efficient way interaction with the DIRAC services provided by the EGI infrastructure.
