The Galaxy Training Network has developed an infrastructure to deliver interactive training based on Galaxy: one central place (https://training.galaxyproject.org) to aggregate training materials covering many current research topics. Each topic is supported by different tutorials developed and maintained by the community via a GitHub repository: https://github.com/galaxyproject/training-material.

The Galaxy Training Network is organizing regular online CoFests (Collaboration/Contribution Fests) every 3 months on the 3rd Thursday for a day of the collaborative work on the training content.

The next one will be on the 15th of November. We plan to focus on genome annotation training; but anyone who would like to contribute on any other topics is very welcome to join. We will coordinate via Hangout (drop-in channel we will keep open the whole day) and the GTN Gitter channel.

During the day, we plan to have a GTN meeting to discuss the recent changes and future directions.


If you want to join to help or to talk and learn about the project, let us know on the Gitter channel.

Bérénice and Saskia will be online between 9am and 6pm (CEST) but people from other time zones should feel welcome to continue even before/after. We will keep an eye on Gitter and GitHub
