Software Carpentry- Post workshop report

Last week Chico State hosted it’s first Software Carpentry workshop and it was a great success. We were thrilled to have Reid Otsuji from UC San Diego and a Library Carpentry instructor come up to help teach the material. We had three undergraduate students help out as technical assistant roaming helpers throughout the workshop: Grant Esparza (Computer Science), Jerry Tucay (Applied Mathematics & Statistics), and Eisley Adoremos (Statistics). Their assistance with answer questions and helping add to the collaborate class notes was invaluable!
