Dear biophysics fellows,
The schedule for the 3 hours workshop is:
Linux Installation Party – We will provide guidance into installing Linux on your own personal machine. The options are:
- A) Installation of a Virtual Machine, so that you have Linux running as a program under Windows or Mac. (Recommended for new laptops – safe, easy option, at least 10GB of your HD required.
- B) Dual boot. A full install, with a partition of your hard-drive (Recommended for old laptops with no sensible data –in other case, backup highly recommended)
- C) Live CD, testing Linux without installing it.
During the installation a very basic Linux tutorial will be given.
Exploration of the Open Source – What is Open Source? What difference does it make? How can it improve everyday science?
We will present the benefit of open-source software as well as a some indispensable tools for collaborative work (GitHub) and library management of research papers (Zotero, the free, easy, and open alternative to Endnote, Mendeley, or Papers)
This is a great opportunity to discover all these tools and exchange with other students about their IT habits. Tea and coffee will be provided. And a BBQ (BYO), will be held in town after the event to extend the possibility of networking, all welcomed, even if you are not able to attend the workshop.
Limited places, so register as soon as possible filling this google form, or sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Priority will be given to MacDiarmid and Institute of Fundamental Sciences -IFS- post-grads but everyone is welcome.
