Keeping the Bootcamp Fun Alive!
Hollister, Jeff, A. Smith, AND P. August. Keeping the Bootcamp Fun Alive! Software Carpentry, Narragansett, RI, n/a, (2014).
This product is a blog post that outlines a course conducted to build on skills learned in a Software Carpentry Bootcamp co-hosted by AED researcher, Jeff Hollister. The post provides details on the course and some lessons learned that will be implemented in future iterations of the bootcamp and course.
In January of 2014, Jeff Hollister co-hosted, along with the URI Coastal Institute, a Software Carpentry Bootcamp to teach scientists (10 attended from USEPA AED)how to utilize computers better and to develop software with R. Additionally, a follow on course to the bootcamp was held in which several EPA staff attended to help refine and expand the skills they learned in the bootcamp. As reproducible research was a focus of the follow on course, the impact of this should be a more reproducible form of science from the attendees in general and the EPA participants in particular.
