GTN CoFest and call on Galaxy Training Material
- Date: February 21st 2019
- Location: Online
- Contact: Bérénice Batut, Saskia Hiltemann
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 21st of February. 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 GTN community calls to discuss the recent changes and future directions. To accommodate different time zones and schedules, we will have 2 calls (with similar discussions) at 8am (UTC + 1) and 4pm (UTC + 1) via Hangout.
If you want to join to help or to talk and learn about the project, let us know on the Gitter channel.
