  • Getting Started with the RCE

    May 05, 3:00pm to 4:00pm

    Location: 

    Room K018, CGIS Knafel. 1737 Cambridge Street, Cambridge MA 02138



    Intended for new users who would like to start using the Research Computing Environment (RCE), this short one-hour course provides a kickstart introduction to using the RCE. The RCE enables social scientists to use popular statistical programs for computations on a shared pool of computing resources. The RCE is accessed remotely and securely via a tool called NX. That is, you can use the RCE from your laptop or desktop anywhere on campus or even anywhere in the world. This short course is intended to get new users started by showing how to install the NX software on a laptop or desktop machine and connecting to the RCE via NX. The RCE will appear as a familiar desktop environment with menus to choose statistical and office productivity applications. This short course will be provided monthly in a classroom format and as an online version that will always be available. Users are welcome to bring their laptops to install RCE right in the class and be ready to use the RCE upon leaving the class.
