Dear training enthusiast,

The Galaxy Training Network (GTN) is planning a contribution fest to consolidate our training material and improve the overall training experience in Galaxy on the 6.-7th October 2016!

More information about this project can be found here:
https://gist.github.com/bgruening/a54a8600c5cddca82424ad13569708c3

and a small presentation is here:
http://bgruening.github.io/training-material/shared/slides/project_presentation#/

This will be an online contribution fest and the fun to contribute should be priority one! There is enough to work on in all areas, from programming to fix spelling mistakes. So everyone is welcome to improve the Galaxy training material.

Organisation

We will coordinate ourselves over Gitter: https://gitter.im/Galaxy-Training-Network/Lobby
In addition we will be available at this hangout https://hangouts.google.com/call/bapluwa3s5deveo5flrcwqzqpme
A list of this that can be worked on during the contribution fest can be found here: https://github.com/bgruening/training-material/issues

How to start contributing?

A small checklist to help you with this contribution fest

  • Create a GitHub account
  • Check the CONTRIBUTING.md
  • Become familiar with this repository structure
  • Connect to the Gitter chat with your GitHub account and say hello :)
  • Check out the issues and PR
  • Add you on the CONTRIBUTORS.md
  • Add you on the Galaxy map
  • Register for the hacktoberfest
  • (If you like) Assign yourself as a maintainer of a topic and take over responsibilities
  • Assign yourself to an issue or a PR when you find one (or create one) and tell it on Gitter
  • Ask if you have any question

Ciao,
Bérénice and Bjoern

Cool beans - I'll try to work on galaxyproject/galaxy#2283 during this. I don't know how that would fit into your master plan but it is Markdown and HTML slides and important documentation - but it is not reveal.js though. The good part of the approach though is that it seems to fit into Sphinx well.
Maybe we should harmonize approaches.

@jmchilton sounds good. Currently we agreed upon reveal.js here: https://github.com/bgruening/training-material/issues/8 But I think as everythin is markdown we can inter convert everything.

@friedue great you can join!

Anyone nearby Freiburg/Germany wants to join? Afaik @hrhotz will visit us on 6th to work with us in Freiburg and others are welcome too!

@stevekm both. We have collected material for admins: https://github.com/bgruening/training-material/tree/master/Admin-Corner, Users and Developers.

stevekm commented Sep 20, 2016

Is there a formal step-by-step guide for Admins getting started with Docker and setting it up as a service? I looked through the items there, and have gone through the documentation in other places but so far haven't found a complete walk-through; had plans to write one myself once I figure it all out.
Also, I had issues with the link in the readme on that page, might need to change it to this? http://galaxy.slides.com/bgruening/the-galaxy-docker-project#/

@stevekm the link is working for me :( What do you see.
We have a lot of documentation about the Docker project here: https://github.com/bgruening/docker-galaxy-stable
I hope this helps.

@bgruening I think the live part of the URL is trying to start a live session; for me it just hangs on the first slide trying to establish a connection to your account. The URL I listed shows the slides only.
The Docker doc's have been very useful but I've still had to pull together info from many other sources (e.g. Ansible playbooks) to get things configured; doc's for the other aspects weren't written in the context of using Docker so its been a little extra confusing to figure out how to piece everything together.

@stevekm are you using this Container or developing for it/with it? The latter is indeed not covered.
Happy to accept patches.

Hi! that's a pretty nice initiative! Have you spit up the 2 days into topics; I'd like to join but I can't join the two entire days.

bgruening commented Sep 22, 2016

@slegras great to see you here!
we haven't any topics, I thought everyone works on a specific training or that small groups working on a specific training over the two days. But I'm open for suggestions.
@stevekm let ma know if you get stuck and how we can improve our documentation.

Ok, I'll be there (on the 6th) and see to which topic(s) I can contribute :). Prior to the Hackathon could we list the topics we could address ?

We will be on gitter/IRC as you like I will open an hangout and will start with a short presentation and what we are aiming for in this project. Then everyone can start gathering together in groups, get things done, ask questions, create PR, have fun to work together :)

I will join the hackathon as well. We have some training materials here: https://github.com/ErasmusMC-Bioinformatics/galaxy-courses, some of which we could maybe adapt/integrate here. And I can help out with the introduction, NGS, and RNA-seq topics in general as we teach those a lot ourselves too. And I could help out in dev-corner for tools/IEs/viz as well.

I would also like to see a metagenomics topic, I've started working on a galaxy training (following this repos' style) for the Mothur MiSeq SOP (http://www.mothur.org/wiki/MiSeq_SOP) with some additional visualisation steps (krona/phinch etc) ..and in the long term would like to add a training for qiime as well (but will need to work on the tools themselves first).

Hi @bebatut @bgruening and all Galaxy lovers, EnginesOn, @jennydg @fjrmoreews @yvanlebras, are insterested to participate to this new hackathon time! The objectives can be for us to improve the training tutorial for RAD-Seq and for Multi-QC developped by @yvanlebras and @cmonjeau. This will also be the opportunity for Jennifer, future leader of the company, to get involved in the community and get familiar with this type of event.....
@bgruening is your cookies sendable by ftp ;) ?

Hi @bebatut @bgruening! @devengineson will be represented by myself, with help from @yvanlebras, @fjrmorreews, @cmonjeau but I will probably not be able to cover the whole 2 days. I already know I won't be available tomorrow morning.

Moreover, there is no when. People from all over the world will join and depending on the timezone this can vary a lot. Just join us on gitter and assign yourself to one of the https://github.com/bgruening/training-material/issues or contribute your own training material!

Hi all,

I'm so sorry we wanted to publish a nice writeup about this great event, but we are swamped with preparation for the Swiss/German Galaxy workshop here in Freiburg. I promise to get to this as soon as possible.... Many thanks to you all again! This was a great event and we hope to organize a similar event soon.
