3. Things to do and know before the workshop !

It is a hands-on workshop, thus it is recommended to have your personal data available for upload.

After some theoretical introductory sessions, you will import some of your personal data into the ETN data platfrom, therefore, you should have some of your personal telemetry data avaialble (e.g. excel, txt, access, sql, … files).

Some preparation from your side is needed before the workshop (see more detailed info on quick guide):

2. Provide us with your project metadata using the template.

Before you can update and manage your (meta)data in the ETN platform, we have to create a project (linked to your account) to link your data to.
