 +\\
 +Hi all,
 +A great PhD course to expand your ecological toolbox with open-source software. \\
 +I went on this course in Copenhagen in 2010, and it was certainly the best and most useful course I took as a PhD student.\\

 +"//​Dear stefano,\\
 +I followed the excellent PhD course on Open Source Tools for Spatial Ecology Modeling organized by Stefano Casalegno and Guiseppe Amatulli. \\
 +Thanks for an excellent course! \\
 +I have made valuable use of the new skills I acquired.//"​ \\

 +//Hi Giuseppe,
 +\\
 +I hope you had a good flight back!
 +I have already filled in the satisfactory survey and here there are some comments in addition: the course gives the opportunity to get familiar with open source tools. It is very well prepared. ​ I like that the theory is focus on the main knowledge and the code is taught using examples and exercises. If the course was longer, I would like to do more exercises especially using R and GRASS or a project to face all the steps (preparing data, exploring, modelling, graphing, etc.) but in one week, students should be able to go on by self-learning hopefully.\\

 +Cheers,// \\

 +//Hi Giuseppe and Stefano,\\
 +\\
 +I forwarded the email to the PhD students at my department. I hope you get enough people together. Thanks again for a great course in Copenhagen last year. I'm still on Ubuntu, but mainly only using R from the course. I never really got the hang of GRASS, but I've been getting into postGIS recently, which is also pretty cool.\\

 +Happy Christmas!//​

 +//Hi Giuseppe,\\
 +\\
 +I have forwarded an recommended this course to a couple of fellow PhD students here in Oslo. Unfortunately the e-mail came a little late for them to participate. I will keep forwarding e-mails of courses in the future.\\
 +\\
 +Good luck with the course and I wish you happy holidays before that!\\
 +\\
 +Cheers,
 +\\
 +PS! I am still using linux as my main OS. I am also using GRASS still but I am using R more and more, also for spatial analysis ... There is so much you can do in R!//

 +Hello to everybody!
 +\\
 +Good to know that you (Giuseppe) are well in the north American middle west! Things are moving fast!
 +\\
 +Thank you for the course, I think with the time we really realize the usefulness of what we learned!
 +\\
 +
 +My Linux usage: In my laptop I have Ubuntu (as you know!) and a virtual machine with Windows (for the complex word documents). ​
 +In my PC from the office I have still Windows, the Ubuntu is over a virtual machine (generated with the VirutalBox software). ​
 +Right now I’m going as well into python (plus GDAL and NumPy), as I’m working more with matrices. ​
 +The first thing I just finished, is an application for a friend: it consist in orthorectifying aerial photographs (from an helicopter), ​
 +using the external geometry of the acquisition (the angles, etc.) and the DEM (terrain elevations).
 +\\
 +Best wishes!
