Workshops in Oxford

The Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford hosted its first Software Carpentry workshop on 13th and 14th January. Instructor and co-organizer Philip Fowler has blogged about it, and included both photographs and some bubble charts of the feedback he received.

Separately, James Allen has blogged about the first and second days of a separate workshop that he ran at Oxford for people in atmostpheric, oceanic, and planetary physics. This was James' first time teaching for us, and his summary of things that he thinks could be improved includes some ideas that we'll fold back into the main notes.

If you've taught a workshop recently, or been at one, we'd enjoy hearing about your experience. Please send us a pull request, or mail the text of what you'd like to say to Greg Wilson and he'll get it up for you.
