  • You are familiar with Linux or UNIX
  • You can read and write Python code
  • You can use SSH and understand how public and private keys work
  • You understand the basic concepts of distributed computing

You will learn how to:

  • Install SAGA on your own machine

  • Use the same program with a different plug-in to run the job on a remote site
  • Add file transfer capabilities to the program to retrieve results
