Jetstream is the first-of-its-kind production cloud resource intended to support education, science, and research. As part of XSEDE, the goal is to aid researchers across the United States that need modest amounts of interactive computing power. Part of the goal in implementing Jetstream is to increase the disciplinary diversity of the XD ecosystem as well as to reach non-traditional researchers that may have HPC needs but have not had adequate access or have faced other barriers to HPC usage. In our session, we will spend the first portion of the tutorial discussing the architecture and use of Jetstream followed by a short question and answer session, and then spend some time getting attendees to get on and try Jetstream. The second portion of the tutorial will build on the Jetstream introduction by using the R/Rstudio virtual machine (launched by attendees) to do some sample workflows in RStudio. The instructor will discuss R and RStudio and talk about the types of research and analysis that a researcher could utilize with R. The next steps will be to use the web desktop environment using RStudio on Jetstream to run a Twitter and sentiment analysis.
