A TANGO workshop took place as part of the ICALEPCS 2015 conference in Melbourne.
The TANGO workshop presented the TANGO control system toolkit. The basics of TANGO and how to write a device server and client were introduced. Then attendees learned how to build graphical user interfaces using Taurus. An overview was given of all the bindings to tools and languages which are available for TANGO. The second half of the workshop was dedicated to the historical archiving system solutions, how to install and use them. The last session was dedicated to advanced features in TANGO. The day concluded with a question and answer discussion session.
