I was wondering if there are office hours for Firecloud questions.
Currently** there are combined office hours for WDL, Cromwell, Firehose, UGER, and FireCloud held at the Broad weekly. They are from 2-3pm on Wednesdays in Yosemite (4001). I know we send at one developer every week to be there, so they may be able to help you troubleshoot particularly difficult or complex issues.
However, we are always happy to answer any questions you have here on the forum. This allows you to access the collective knowledge of the entire team rather than just one developer.
**I can't guarantee this will always be the time or place for these office hours, or that they will occur every week in perpetuity. I don't personally attend, and I'm not involved in scheduling this meeting.
Are there still Firecloud office hours, and if not, what is the best way to ask for simple tips?
Yes, there are. See Kate's note above. What kind of tips are you looking for?
Office hours still occur (at this time of writing) from 2-3pm on Wednesdays in Yosemite (4001).
The best way to ask for simple tips is here on the forum, as you will have access to the collective knowledge of all our developers and support people, rather than just access to one person in the office hours. Should you find you still need in-person assistance, then the office hours are available to you as an option.
Is the office hours still on Wednesdays 2-3 pm. Has the location change of DSP affected time or location of the office hours. I already asked my question here https://gatkforums.broadinstitute.org/firecloud/discussion/13293/deleting-files-not-in-the-metadata#latest
But I think in-person help would be better to handle this issue.
Hey @DivyKangeyan, looks like the office hours are still Wednesdays 2-3 in Yosemite 75 Ames Room 4001. Is that consistent to what you have?
@SChaluvadi Yes, Thank you!
