15 participants joined the workshop from 4 european countries, with heterogeneous background.

The first day was dedicated to training: how to integrate tools to Galaxy and how to create training material for Galaxy, with Gildas, Anthony, Björn, Bérénice and Lorraine as instructors.

Subsequently, a Hackathon started with several self-organised groups:

  • Tool integration
  • Training Material
  • Continuous Integration (Travis / Circle CI / Gitlab CI)
  • Galaxy Interactive Environment
  • Galaxy Genome Annotation
  • Material and Methods automatic generation

We also had some breakout sessions about:

  • Galaxy Administration: usegalaxy.* by usegalaxy.eu
  • Galaxy Interactive Tour
  • Visualization within Galaxy

Based on the nice feedback we received, the 15 participants and the 4 instuctors enjoyed this workshop, but also the local food and the warm welcome of the organizers. Thanks again for this fabulous workshop!
