GT4 Friends: A GT4 Community Group

GT4 Friends is a group of people from the Grid community who collaborate with Globus Alliance developers, exchanging ideas and providing feedback on GT4 releases. Membership in GT4 Friends is open: to begin participating please join the GT4 Friends email discussion list. (To subscribe, send an email to majordomo@globus.org containing the words "subscribe gt4-friends" in the message body.)

Many Thursdays during the GT4 dev cycle the Globus Alliance will host community teleconferences to provide updates on the status and plans of GT4 development, as well as the opportunity to ask questions and participate in technical discussions. The calls take place two times in the day in order to accommodate multiple timezones (presentation content is identical.)
