Video of the week - Remarks from a grid school graduate

Video courtesy of John Urish. 

Samer Al-Kiswany, a graduate student at the University of British Colombia, attended the Florida International Grid School in January 2008.

In November, while attending SC08, he spoke with Open Science Grid about what he learned at the school and how it has helped him move forward with his research.

Al-Kiswany describes his motivation for attending the school, enumerates the most valuable things he learned there, and discusses his current work and achievements in his field of grid storage.

The 2008 school was organized jointly by Open Science Grid, TeraGrid, the SC07 Education Program together with CHEPREOCIARA at Florida International University, and the Computation Institute of The University of Chicago.
