New Globus REST APIs, combined with high-speed networks and Science DMZs, create a research data platform on which developers can create entirely new classes of scientific applications, portals, and gateways. Globus is an established service that is widely used for managing research data on XSEDE and campus computing resources, and it continues to evolve with the addition of data publication capabilities, and improvements to the core data transfer and sharing functions. Over the past year we have added new identity and access management functionality that will simplify access to Globus using campus logins, and facilitate the integration of Globus, XSEDE, and other research services into web and mobile applications.

In this tutorial, we use real-world examples to show how these new technologies can be applied to realize immediately useful capabilities. We explain how the Globus APIs provide intuitive access to authentication, authorization, sharing, transfer, and synchronization capabilities. Companion code (supplemented by iPython/Jupyter notebooks) will provide application skeletons that workshop participants can adapt to realize their own research data portals, science gateways, and other web applications that support research data workflows.
