REANA mini-workshop 2021-02-24


A mini-workshop amongst REANA users and developers. Sharing tips and tricks and identifying what needs improvement. The mini-workshop is split into several topical blocks. The organisation is very informal, we are simply looking at providing a point in time and space to meet and work on some common concrete topics in an "open office" manner. Please feel free to drop by and leave and drop by again anytime throughout the event! We shall have regular ad-hoc breaks throughout the afternoon, but we shall always try to start the topical blocks at an indicated hour.
