Hands-On Tutorial: Start, Configure, and Explore a New Hub

by Michael McLennan

What Is HUBzero?

HUBzero is an open source software platform for building powerful Web sites that support scientific discovery, learning, and collaboration. Some refer to such web sites as “collaboratories” supporting “team science.” We call them “hubs” because each site becomes a focal point for its user community.
