In this session you will learn the internals of the Docker Galaxy Image. We will show you tips and tricks on how to run the Galaxy Docker Image successfully in production, how to manage updates and how to bind the container to a cluster scheduler. Moreover, you will learn how to create your own Galaxy flavour mixing a variety of different tools and visualisations.

  • Basic understanding of Galaxy from a developer point of view.
  • General knowledge about Docker
  • 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 in this workshop.
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.  Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
