Title: Updates to QSO Software at CFHT

Presenter: Kanoa Withington


CFHT is mid-way in a system-wide update of the software used for Queue Service Observing. Here we present the current state of those changes and highlight those that affect the CFHT user community. The changes are motivated by two goals: 1) upgrade infrastructure that has been frozen for so long it has become a risk 2) create a platform for deploying new features while minimizing the risk inherent to change. CFHT operates entirely in QSO mode and we depend on its uninterrupted reliability. The CFHT user community is also remarkably innovative and the theme of this work is to support that innovation while ensuring high availability.
