On January 12th, 2022, the first training session of the SmartShip project took place at Harokopio University of Athens. Despite the fact that the new covid restrictions did not allow for a full physical meeting, a hybrid training session was held where 21 people from SmartShip partners gathered either virtually or physically to learn about novel methodologies of storing and querying trajectory data and developing micro-services. In the three-part training session, Harokopio University first introduced a novel, and open-source database, called MobilityDB, suitable for storing and querying trajectory data on which Smartship partners were trained. Then, DANAOS presented its respective tools in the field and their applications in the Smartship project. Finally, Bluesoft presented Kubernetes, an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications that could prove useful in Smartship applications.
