Guidelines for Speakers

General things

  1. Lecture is usually 1 hour long, don't forget time for the questions.
  2. Workshop slots are typically 3 hours, this should include theoretical introduction (often 30 min will be more than enough) and practical exercises (here the more the better;) ). 
  3. Hackathons might require some intro with the slides as well, we will have projectors in the lab rooms for this purpose.
  4. Each student will have a laptop with Ubuntu installed. Please, prepare your exercises so they can run even on older laptops in reasonable amount of time, i.e. for de novo assembly workshop we were using 100Kb region of one chromosome.
  5. In case if some students will have troubles with their laptop, which cannot be solved in a reasonable amount of time, we will provide them with account on the virtual machine.
  6. Please, add the software you will need in your workshop/hackathon to this list. We'll ask all participants to install this upfront (and also install it in our HPC nodes).

Quick Edit: In-place editing of content

Drupal offers Quick Edit, meaning you can edit any content and see it's effect in the current browser window. I strongly recommend using it, as it's very handy. You can access it by clicking small pencil symbol in the top right corner of any content and selecting `Quick edit`.
