We are excited to announce our first INTERSECT RSE Workshop, August 9-10, 2022 at Princeton University! Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, we are organizing a 1.5 day workshop to generate content for future INTERSECT-sponsored RSE bootcamps.
This workshop has two main goals:
We have funding available to cover the expenses for some participants. We are asking for individuals to use this form to express and interest and ability to attend the entirety of the workshop.
This first workshop will lay the foundation for the INTERSECT-sponsored RSE bootcamps that aim to deliver RSE-led training to intermediate and advanced research software developers. As one of the primary goals of the workshop is to produce training materials, the bulk of the workshop time will be spent in small working groups focused on producing content. The following section provides an initial list of the topics for which workshop participants will develop and/or curate content.
As a starting point for the workshop discussions, we have identified the following high-level topics. These topics constitute a proposed outline for the bootcamp. Beneath each topic is a list of the potential content for each topic to serve as a starting point for the workshop. Through discussion and collaboration during the workshop, participates will refine this list, perhaps significantly, and then collaboratively modify existing material or develop new material.
Across all of the training modules, we have three overaching goals:
We aim to have each module 90% complete by the end of the workshop. Additional refinement and improvement can happen asynchronously afterward the workshop
See the Preliminary Structure above for the tentative list of topics covered in the workshop.
We will determine this during the workshop. However we anticipate the materials will reside in some sort of Git repository.
After the workshop, we will finish curating the materials to prepare for the first INTERSECT Bootcamp.
Yes. We intend to create reusable materials that can be taught in other venues.
Not at the workshop. However, once the workshop ends we encourage community participation to extend and enhance the training material.
