Next GTN CoFest May 20, 2021

Posted on: 18 March 2021

Every 3 months we organise one day dedicated to the GTN community! Thursday, May 20th is the next GTN CoFest. We will be working on the training materials, have discussions with the global Galaxy traning community. Do you teach with Galaxy? Want to learn how to add your tutorial to the GTN? New to the community and just want to learn more? Everybody is welcome!


Anyone who would like to contribute, learn how to contribute to the Galaxy Training Material or just catch up with the community is very welcome to join.

We will coordinate via Zoom (drop-in channel we will keep open the whole day) and the GTN Gitter channel.

New Feature:

20 April 2023   new feature gtn

The GTN has set up a very simple “redirection” service based on which Helena discovered after reading some Home Assistant documentation and saw a really neat link which led to her own internal home assistant.

New Feature: Persistent URLs (PURLs) / Shortlinks

19 April 2023   new feature gtn

The GTN has added persistent URL identifiers for our tutorials, slides, and FAQs. Using the service, we have reserved GTN namespace for our persistent URLs. These work similarly to DOIs in that they will always point to a specific training material.
