GCC 2017 has ended
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) is being held in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June.  GCC2017 will include keynotes and accepted talks, poster sessions, demos, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2017 to present your work and to learn from others.

The full printed program is also available.

Abstract

With more than 90 public and hundreds of non-public Galaxy servers, there is a growing demand for managing Galaxy application servers. Even though on the surface this is a straightforward task, in the long run or when an instance serves a large number of users, the administration requirements become significant. Examples of administration tasks include proper selection of hardware, deploying in a production-ready mode, connecting to a compute cluster or external authentication, keeping an instance up to date, etc. Cumulatively, these tasks require detailed knowledge of the Galaxy administration principles. In response, we have designed Galaxy Admin Training materials - a set of tutorials catered to current and future administrators intended to educate them about the principles of Galaxy administration.

The Galaxy Admin Training is envisioned as a multi-day interactive training workshop and/or a set of materials that can be followed in a self-paced setting. The current set of topics cover a range from introductory steps required to setup an instance of Galaxy on one's laptop, to advanced Galaxy server or cluster setup, to managing users and resources, to setting up Interactive Environments. All the materials are developed and available in a public GitHub repository (https://github.com/galaxyproject/dagobah-training), facilitating revisions and expansion of topics.

Conceptually, the materials represent an educational framework for training Galaxy server administration. Any community additions/modifications/updates to the materials can be added to the master repository via a pull request. Community involvement and reuse of the materials is encouraged, with help available from the past instructors.
