Abstract

The Grid INFN virtual Laboratory for Dissemination Activities (GILDA) is a fully fledged Grid test-bed devoted to training and outreach activities. Open to anyone who wants to have its first hands-on experience with grid systems, GILDA has been adopted as the official training infrastructure by many Grid projects all around the world. All services, tools and materials produced in the past tutorials can be freely used by anyone who wants to learn and teach Grid technology. Additionally, through a set of applications ported on its Grid Infrastructure, developers can identify components and learn by examples how to “gridify” their applications. This work presents the main features of such training infrastructure.
