Release overview (approx 2 hours)

Ganga has developed into a major piece of software, offering a wealth of functionality. Even with the weekly phone meetings, it can be difficult to keep track of the new features being added. This session should provide a comprehensive overview of the functionality provided by release 4.2, with special attention given to features added since release 4.1.

The format to be adopted is that each developer should give a brief account (<5 minutes) of the component/functionality worked on for release 4.2, and should then give a short demo (5-10 minutes).

For the above, I'd like to ask you to do the following:

  • Please send me 2-5 slides describing the Ganga component/functionality you worked on for release 4.2. I will collect all slides into a single presentation, so that at the meeting we'll basically have a round-table discussion and won't lose time changing from one presentation file to another.
  • Please prepare a short demo highlighting some aspect of the functionality you've added. I give some suggestions for demos below (which also give an indication of what I'm expecting will be covered in your slides), but feel free to give a demo of anything not mentioned, as I probably don't know about it!

So I will ask from:

  • Kuba : Demo of latest core functionality - things that perhaps nobody else knows about!
  • Adrian : Using the new test framework (e.g. adding a new test case)
  • Alexander : Using the remove repository; Working with subjobs; Working with folders
  • Vladimir : Sandbox functionality
  • Hurng-Chun : Submitting simple jobs to the LCG backend; Using GangaPlotter
  • Alvin : GUI functionality; Monitoring possibilities
  • Ulrik : Running ROOT jobs
  • Andrew : Running LHCb jobs, illustrating dataset definition and job splitting
  • Johannes : Running Athena jobs, illustrating dataset definition, job splitting and output merging
  • Frederic : Running ATLAS production-type jobs
  • Karl : Working with the command-line scripts; Interactive backend
  • Other : Please give suggestions!

Current use patterns (approx 1 hour)

The aim here is to survey the way Ganga is currently being used, and to evaluate if this represents effective use of Ganga or if users should be encouraged to try something different.

For this session, we need input from people actively using Ganga. Please let me know: (1) if you've received user feedback that you can present or (2) if you know of any users who might be willing to give me a summary of their experience with Ganga.
