Prerequisites/recommended skill level#
This chapter will discuss BinderHub, which is the cloud technology powering Binder. We will cover the technologies and tools that BinderHub utilises and the resources you will need to setup your own BinderHub.
This chapter is primarily aimed at Research Software Engineers and IT Services who wish to provide a BinderHub as a service to a group of researchers. Though anyone can build a BinderHub.
Motivation and Background#
Reading this chapter will give you a clearer picture of how Binder services (such as mybinder.org) operate, the technologies powering BinderHub and how they interact with one another. This chapter also covers reasons why you might build your own BinderHub, rather than using the public service at mybinder.org.
