Welcome to Ronin! We are glad to have you here! You're probably eager to get started, so let's begin!
First of all, you need a place where you can experiment.
Consider a project in Ronin as a sandbox. No matter what incredible research you wish to work on, the project you create in Ronin is your space and you are in charge.
A project can be anything, perhaps you're a team of researchers observing trends in the human genome, and require high performance compute power. Maybe you're a teacher and want to create a place where your students can learn computing while keeping a watchful eye on them. Or maybe you're just ridin' solo and need a place to experiment in the world of cloud computing.
Ronin strives to make all these scenarios easy.
