The aim of the hackathon (10/02 & 6/04 2021) is to develop training materials and use-cases, freely available for organizing courses and self-learning on containers and workflows. A plethora of choices exist as to which technologies that can be used regarding containers and workflow pipelines. With the recent increase in popularity of Docker and Singularity containers and Nextflow pipelines, these are being put forward.

The hackathon takes place on two days:

  • On the first day, the framework for practical training materials and the learning objectives will be defined, the existing materials will be collected and the participants' profile will be defined.
  • On the second day, the group will work on the training material and design exercises for hands-on training.

This hackathon arises from the outcome of a survey ran by the ELIXIR Training Platform which identified containers and workflow pipelines as one of the major gaps. ELIXIR Belgium engages in this hackathon series for the development of training materials on this topic.
