It's CC licensed; might be helpful as a starting point at least, but we liked it.
That cheat sheet is CC BY-SA, and SWC is CC BY, but maybe not a problem if you keep the cheat sheet separate.
Version control with Git - Cait, Karthik.
Basic Python --Dhavide, Cait
Testing Ben, Bernhard (if you want help) (Yes, thanks, will e-mail you.)
SQL -- Ethan, Alex Viana
Regular Expressions - Emily Jane, Ted [what portion of bootcamps include regexp?] [I don't know in general- but folks at UT really liked them last week][I like them too, but we didn't cover them] [Do you guys also cover regexp testers? Kodos is super useful for Python. [like regexpal?]I use regexpal as well Cool! --> grep and sed in shell scripting
Volunteers to write cheat sheets for modules for use in boot camps
See prevous point on 3 line summary. The volunteers for each section will do both the 3 line summary and the cheat sheet
Volunteers to lead "sales" conversation with not-yet-scheduled boot camps
Companies are okay, even though focus is on public sector
Bootcamps do not have to be in English; welcome moving the material to other host countries
Amy to keep track of who is talking with which sites
Katy: Other Chicago area school ideas? [katy] other than UChicago, which we're doing... I can't bottom-line more than one more before this summer... but I could help at Northwestern, UIC. I don't really have contacts at those places... but... hm. [cait] I don't have contacts either (undergrad at Lake Forest College, north of the city, but no grad students there). Northwestern could be interesting.
[Geoff] Livermore? I could do Philadelphia-area sites also, with enough advance notice, since I grew up around there. I went to the University of Delaware, and can talk to them.
[Emily Jane] University of Kansas
[Ted] I have a proposal in for ESA 2013 (Ecological society). [Karthik] yay Ted. I'm maxed out on ESA workshops but will help run it if I don't have schedule conflicts. let me know.
[Geoff] I could do one at the AIChE conference; it's being run in San Francisco, so it's easy for me to add another couple days.[Karthik] I'm in SF and can help.
[Matt] Cal Poly, San Diego State
Volunteers for online office hours (Jan-Feb, once a week)
Online tutorials not well attended last summer
Will test having individual help to answer that question

Dhavide Aruliah: I'm willing to give it a go for an hour on Wednesdays...
Ethan White: Count me in
Mike Hansen: I'm onboard.
Ben Waugh: me too, and have some funding to pay grad students to help
Matt Davis: Definitely in for this.
Cait Pickens: I'm in
Geoff Oxberry: I'm in, after I get trained in the study group
Ross Dickson: volunteers
Shreyas Cholia: onboard assuming travel schedule is not too hectic
Hosts please encourage people to use the service once it goes online
Goal is to give people enough knowledge to ask their questions on something like StackOverflow
Lynne to track questions/responses and create FAQ page for webpage
Volunteers for minor tasks
Someone to volunteer to write numpy/matplotlib (#72) [Joon Ro just developed some material as well] [I thought Matt had a start on this?]
Need retroactive clearance for open source for content developers
Applying to Sloan Foundation to have someone work FT for SWC for a year
New teacher materials? - Instructor's Guide Partially Exists
Hopefully by end of January with John's help
Next round of study group starts off in January. Let Greg know if you would like to participate
Big picture question (maybe folded into discussion of long-term assessment): Are two-day workshops the best model for making a difference? I am becoming skeptical about how much sticks two months later...[Steve]
Greg: "If you can give a three week or three month one, tell me and let me know how it goes."
We have done a couple 2-week class (and official univeristy quarter-long).
The two-day format seems good at telling you what you should learn, but not necessarily teaching it (with implications for curriculum).
I like week long formats, personally [Anthony]
I'm a fan of 2 day workshops, long enough to get some real material in, but able to fit into busy schedules [Emily Jane]
Greg's Last Request: Send to Greg a nice hi-res photo of yourself in the SWC T-Shirt.
