With the help of physics major Jared Hand, we’ve started a weekly meeting group here in physics to discuss scientific computing — the Boise State SciComp Workshomp.
The meetings take place in the physics building, room MP408, and will focus on the nitty gritty of scientific computing — how to install and run various codes and packages.
We’ve started a github repository for the group: https://github.com/decaelus/BoiseState_SciComp_Workshomp.
We will keep a log of our meetings on the associated wiki: https://github.com/decaelus/BoiseState_SciComp_Workshomp/wiki/Working-with-Git.
We’re currently working through a presentation from the Software Carpentry Foundation on using git: http://slides.com/abostroem/local_version_control#.
