The Beacon project has received a lot of attention and can already count with implementations (e.g., CINECA cohorts, Beacon+). Beacon purposely leaves a lot of room for freedom on the options to be implemented, and its versatility is part of its success. It also means that implementing Beacon can sometimes be quite challenging: this training session presents the steps for a Beacon implementation in general ways, and leaves room for an extended Q&A session from the audience. The questions might be sent in advance so the use cases can turn into training exercises.

Training outcomes: At the end of the training session, participants should have the tools to get started with the implementation autonomously, and have identified the resource persons to answer their questions during the implementation process.
