  1. Continue getting CodaLab running on NCI's network and VMs:
    1. Issues:
      1. Credentials for AWS bucket not active and we cannot talk to the bucket. Need to reach out to Tony Bigham ( to get those refreshed. 
      2. On my local machine I deployed the updated CodaLab code and tried connecting to my own S3 bucket instance. I noticed that there is a javascript error making the request to the bucket. I need to setup up a similar but more simple setup to figure out how to upload data to s3 via javascript http requests so that I can trouble shoot the error on NCI's system and or mine. If we could use Azure, this might be resolved.
