1st EasyBuild User Meeting

Kenneth Hoste edited this page Feb 3, 2016 · 57 revisions


The EasyBuild User Meeting is an open and highly interactive event that provides a great opportunity to meet fellow EasyBuild enthusiasts, discuss related topics and learn about new aspects of the tool.

It is intended for people that are already familiar with EasyBuild, ranging from occasional users to EasyBuild core developers and experts, and topics will be less introductory in nature than during EasyBuild hackathons/workshops that have been organised in the past.

The program includes presentations by both EasyBuild users and developers, next to hands-on sessions.

The presentations will cover a wide variety of EasyBuild related topics, including how EasyBuild has been integrated into existing infrastructure, how it can be combined with other tools, (new) EasyBuild features that are considered particularly useful, or other tools that are somehow (loosely) related to EasyBuild and could be of interest to attendees.

The hands-on sessions are intended for becoming more familiar with the practical aspects of EasyBuild, resolving problems with the help of others, and/or working together to further enhance EasyBuild. Participants are expected to decide for themselves what they work on during the hands-on sessions.
