Thank you for registering for the Genomic data science with the Galaxy
workbench <https://galaxyproject.org/events/2019-sacnas> pre-conference
workshop at 2019 SACNAS. As a reminder this workshop will be held
Wednesday, October 30, 9am- 6pm at the Hawai’l Convention Center. Breaks
and lunch will be provided.
The workshop will be hands-on! Please bring a fully charged,* wifi-enabled
laptop with Firefox or Chrome already installed on it.
We have set up two channels for communication.
1. This mailing list. We’ll use it to send out information that needs to
go to everyone.
2. A workshop chat channel on Gitter.im:
https://gitter.im/galaxyproject/SACNAS-2019. Please use this for chat.
We’ll use this for communication (for example, links) during the workshop,
and for any discussion that doesn’t need to go to everyone, right now.
You are already a member of the mailing list. And you can already see
everything posted on chat. However, if you want to post something to chat,
you will need to login to Gitter with either your GitHub**, GitLab, or
This workshop is now full and future applicants will be placed on a waiting
list. To make sure that we don’t have vacant seats, please let us know as
soon as possible if you are no longer able to attend.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and we will see you on
Gitter, and in Honolulu,

** Why you should be on GitHub (or GitLab)!
If you don’t already have a GitHub <https://github.com/> (or GitLab)
account then we strongly recommend getting one. Data science happens with
Git <https://git-scm.com/>, and GitHub is the most popular platform for
using Git. You won’t need to understand Git to understand this workshop.
*** Why you should be on Twitter
We can’t speak to disciplines outside of life sciences, but for life
sciences these two quotes reflect the importance of Twitter in these fields:
Twitter is one of the most important bioinformatics tools you can use.
