How to Help at a Bootcamp

Aleksandra Pawlik has written a five-point guide to helping out with Software Carpentry bootcamps:

  1. Familiarity is not enough.
  2. You're not just there to troubleshoot, you're there to troubleshoot fast.
  3. Expect the unexpected.
  4. Be proactive.
  5. IT all-rounder.

This, and Katy Huff's "How to Help at a Bootcamp", are tremendously valuable: if you have tips of your own to add, please send 'em in.
