Galaxy Community calls

The Galaxy community gathers in the Community Calls to share updates and discussions. And the most important part: everyone is welcome to present in this new forum!

When?

Every other Thursday at 3 pm UTC.

How will they work?

The call will be divided in two parts:

  • First part: presentation about a topic of interest, followed by questions and discussion.
  • Second part: general community updates. We will keep a running document with agendas that you can look up or edit anytime.

Every call will be chaired by a community member that will:

  • Introduce the speaker;
  • Moderate the Q\&A after the talk;
  • Walk the attendees through the agenda on the second part of the call, with inputs from other community members;
  • Encourage the attendees to take collaborative notes.

But wait... can I present?

Sure, you can! These calls are open to any topics of interest related to the Galaxy community. A few ideas:

  • You've made a new, cool contribution to the Galaxy ecosystem that others should know about (Galaxy feature, tool, workflow, etc.);
  • You are trying to launch your own community within Galaxy and are seeking help or advice, or want to share your progress with others;
  • You'd like to explore possible collaborations with the Galaxy community members;
  • You are working on an interesting scientific project;
  • You want to introduce your local community to the global community;
  • You have finished a mentorship program and want to talk about your project;
  • ... or whatever you consider that is worth sharing!

Please get in touch if you'd like to present.
