One of the most powerful tools on nanoHUB is something we call a workspace, which is a full-featured Linux desktop that you can access any time, any place, from your web browser. Workspaces are fully loaded with the latest nanoHUB software stack, including the Rappture toolkit, Octave, Scilab, a variety of compilers, and other handy utilities.
This tutorial shows how to use workspaces for research and for tool development. It shows how to request access to workspaces, how to launch them, how to share them, how to transfer files in and out, and how to access Grid computing resources.
