Day Zero AARNet Workshop #2
from 2 to 4:30pm

AARNet - Data handling, network know-how & problem solving

AARNet is the VALA Tech Camp 2017 Tech Partner – which means nothing happens without them, including Day 0. We are chuffed that AARNet has also come on board to support our Workshop program, and will be offering some hands on for network speed testing and problem solving on data movement based on digitisation workflows.

Your Presenter: Ingrid Mason

Who Should Attend: those with some knowledge of or practice in digital collection management, digitisation, or research data management, and an interest in tools and techniques that support data and technology intensive workflows.

What You Must Do: before the Workshop, you’ll need to test the speed (download and upload) of the broadband connections at home, at work or on the go with a speed test tool provided locally e.g. iinet, Telstra, Optus and record the device used, e.g. laptop or desktop computer, phone or tablet. We’ll send more instructions about this nearer to the event.

The IP the participants will be using in the workshop is:

Requests for access to a CloudStor group to go to: and copied to me: with the statement in the email: “I would like to share this sub folder: “VALA Tech Camp 2017” in the group drive that belongs to Ingrid Mason (AARNet eResearch), and I am one of the VALA Tech Camp workshop participants.”

This instruction goes for workshop participants with AAF (Australian Access Federation) credentials enabled through their institution (mostly universities) and those without AAF credentials (please could participants declare if they have AAF credentials or not).

Please could workshop participants have their user account set up step completed well before the workshop and please confirm with Ingrid Mason that they have logged in.
