Special Edition Webinar: How SGCI Helped Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment (CERA) Gateway Meet Their Goals

Presented by Jason Fleming, ASGS Technology Manager, Seahorse Coastal Consulting, LLC

During a critical event like an impending or active tropical storm, emergency managers, weather forecasters, and GIS specialists seek visualizations and geographic data to evaluate the impact of this storm. The Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment (CERA) science gateway provides real-time decision support through their storm surge mapper and storm surge model. The CERA team participated in the second Science Gateway Bootcamp offered by the SGCI Incubator. Join us to hear about the CERA team's experience with the Bootcamp and how the Bootcamp led them down a path to work with usability consultants from SGCI's Incubator service area. The team is also currently working with SGCI's Extended Developer Support consultants.

Webinar: Tech Sampler—Lessons learned from using Keycloak and GraphQL in gateways

Tech Sampler—Lessons learned from using Keycloak and GraphQL in gateways

Presented by Marcus Christie, Indiana University, and Steven Snyder, Purdue University
Members of the SGCI Extended Developer Support Team

SGCI's Extended Developer Support team works with many different technologies to help gateways build or enhance their services. This webinar features two such technologies: Keycloak and GraphQL.

Keycloak is an Identity and Access Management application that can be used to manage authentication and authorization of users to your gateway. Keycloak is particularly helpful if you need not only to secure access to your frontend but also to secure access to an API backend. Marcus has integrated it with the open-source platform Apace Airavata, described in this Tech Blog.

GraphQL is an alternative to REST services developed at Facebook to support their mobile apps. GraphQL's expressive queries let clients compose operations using the types that have been defined as building blocks, which makes it particularly suitable for gateways that are in rapid development periods or those that aim to support multiple client interfaces to a common data layer. You can read Steve's description of this tool in his Tech Blog.
