GCC2019 has ended
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-8 July.  There was one day of training, three days of mixed meeting and training, and then two to four days of CollaborationFest.  The meeting featured joint & parallel sessions; invited, accepted, and lightning talks; poster and demo sessions; birds-of-a-feather meetups; social events; and training sessions every day.

Thanks to everyone who helped make GCC2019 a success!

This training session has a Gitter channel where preparation instructions are posted, and for class discussion, last minute links, and more.


After attending this and the previous 2 sessions you will be able to interconnect and troubleshoot a darn good Galaxy instance. Topics include:

  • exploring the Galaxy job configuration file
  • connecting Galaxy to compute clusters
  • polishing Galaxy on uWSGI application server
  • instance monitoring using Grafana
  • shared data management with CVMFS
  • when things go wrong: Galaxy server troubleshooting tips & examples

  • Knowledge and comfort with the Unix/Linux command line interface and a text editor: If you don't know what cd, mv, rm, mkdir, chmod, grep and so on can do then you will struggle
  • Knowledge of topics from or attendance at session I and session II.
