- well prepared workshop - thinking of starting use OS tools and Linux OS

1. Yes 2. For those unfamiliar with any coding, I think they might be lost in the first hour or so because you jumped right in. I think loading the front end of the course with a little bit more on how to understand syntax would be good. Maybe a few exercises early on showing how to decompose code.

Kyle Lochhead, 2015/07/15 21:51

Great - Well organized, exercises were very helpful in learning the syntax and developing the workflows/scripts, instructor was very helpful and encouraging during debugging

Missing - would have liked a bit more on data structures - how to create new ones and the pros and cons of some common structures, also a bit on managing large datasets for setting up processing - the pre-processing

Overall - Great course, would highly recommend, just wish I received this training earlier in my program

1. Have everyone set up a free AWS account on the first day. Go through steps to install all OS software on the AWS instance, and run all course materials on the AWS server. 2. For exercises, set up a common workflow and go through all the steps in one workflow with one common dataset.

Tanya, 2015/07/15 21:53

1. Yes. 2. It was a bit challenging following along with many tools at once, but I found overall it to be a nice introduction to coding in Linux. I will need to practice more with the exercises before feeling comfortable working in this environment.

Ignacio, 2015/07/15 21:53

Yes, very much. Opened my eyes to many different approaches that can be used to process big data in a more tailored, interoperable and fast way. I was myself starting to have challenges in windows because some of the processing was too slow; so after this I now know where to point at: moving to linux and OS software. I would like to explore ways to work together with python and r.

I have the feeling that the most important pieces of software were grass and grid processing. The rest of the tools are important as support, but those two are crucial. Maybe I will use some more time on them.

Thanks for everything Giussepe. Has been truly a great course and you a great teacher transmitting you enthusiasm for the topic and experience. ignacio

Riccardo Tortini, 2015/07/15 21:53

I find challenging to give an overview of many tools/languages to a differentiate audience over a limited number of training hours. In this optic the course was well designed and balanced. However, I would personally focus into fewer tasks, possibly based on background and research interests. In my specific case, I found the bash/AWK lecture and practical training extremely useful for my research goals.
