This is a video of a breakout session from BriForum Europe 2007, presented by Kalle Saunamäki.
Session Description: This session is all about automation and more efficient operation of SoftGrid infrastructure, from packaging to client. Each major facet (packaging, client, backend) is a separate part of session and topic on it's own, but the overall theme of session is how to automate, streamline and interface programmatically with SoftGrid components.

- For the backend part, automation examples and theory will include usage of a still undocumented management interface as well as 3rd party tools. In conjunction with an example of the management interface in use, a new free tool will be introduced.
- For the sequencing/packaging part, usage of free 3rd party tools to utilize "automated" sequencing and verification is examined as well as how to manually make use of command-line interface of Sequencer.
- For the client part, usage of SoftGrid client's command-line interface is explored together with how to utilize this interface programmatically. Examples of scripting will be given and possibilities of automation on client-side will be discussed: how to integrate SoftGrid client with management solutions and how to enhance maintenance of SoftGrid Client.
