The GENI ecosystem has many different communities and as you start using GENI it will be useful if you start following the activities of many of them. This page provides a list of ways to be connected with the GENI community.

Join user mailing lists

As an experimenter you should join the experimenter's mailing list. As a member of this list you will get notifications for GENI events that are of interest to experimenters as well as announcements for GENI resources and tools and will help you stay connected with other GENI experiments.

Depending on which resources and tools you are using for your experiments there are various other mailing lists that you should consider joining to get help.

GENI Resource Mailing lists Discuss issues related to ProtoGeni. Ask questions about how to use ProtoGeni, suggest new features and report bugs. Please see for more information.

It is a supportive environment tolerant of "newbie" questions and mistakes. It is intended to be more responsive than support for problems that users can solve. Its role is to help the PlanetLab community support itself where possible
