Functional Description

"GATB-Core tutorial" is an interactive learning tool that aims at learning software development relying on the bioinformatics toolkit GATB-Core without the need of installing it, its dependencies and a C++ compiler. The tutorial relies on a client-server system. The client is simply a web browser running a full-featured C++ code editor. In turns, it is embedded in templates for the purpose of displaying various lessons. The server side is a Linux-based VM capable of compiling and running "online" any C++ code snippets using GATB-Core. That VM is deployed on Inria's A||Go SaaS platform.
