Galaxy Admin Training 2016 is a weeklong event offering basic and advanced sessions. It will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 7-11, 2016, the week before Supercomputing 16 (SC16) meets in Salt Lake. These workshops are aimed at admins from organizations and labs that are installing, upgrading, or prototyping Galaxy instances.
This two day basics session will introduce participants to what you need to know to get a Galaxy server up and running on a standalone server. You'll also learn how to extend your Galaxy with your own tools and tools from the community, and how to define reference data in your server.
The three day advanced session will build on topics covered in the basics section. This session both extends those topics, such as tool definition, and adds new ones, such as working with compute clusters and heterogeneous resources. The goal of the advanced workshop is to enable Galaxy administrators to create robust, high-performance Galaxy instances that take full advantage of available tools and compute and storage resources.
