This training is designed as a quick introduction or review, lasting four hours. Sessions will be recorded for review afterwards.

This event is also hosted on Indico.


Throughout the training, participants are free to ask questions via a Google Live doc associate with each topic:

You can write questions there, anonymously or not, and experts will reply. This method is preferred as the chat on Zoom can quickly saturate so this method proved to be successful at the previous training. We will collect all questions and release a Q&A after the event.

You can join DUNE’s Slack: We created a special channel #computing_training_basics for technical support, join here.
