UK HEP System Managers Pre Meeting Workshop on Ganga. PREREQUISITE: Ganga is pure python but for this workshop, we recommend running the CernVM on a laptop. Run through the tutorial here: https://www.gridpp.ac.uk/wiki/GridPP_and_the_CERN_VM_service This will get you a system that can not only try out Ganga but also submit to the GridPP Dirac service. If you don't have access to the GridPP Dirac service or just want to try out Ganga on local backends, any SL6 installation should work though having CMVFS would be an advantage. Running from Lxplus would be the obvious choice here.
