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#.

github-octocatHad our first Scientific Computing Discussion group meeting on Friday at noon. These meetings are intended to familiarize our students with scientific computing applications and how to manage and maintain various science computing modules. We started a github repository where we’ll post notes and other information: https://github.com/decaelus/BoiseState_PAC_Workshop.

Attendees included Liz Kandziolka, Emily Jensen, Jennifer Briggs, Ahn Hyung, Tiffany Watkins, Jesus Caloca, and Helena Nikolai. Jared Hand helped lead the discussion. (Apologies to those of you who attended but I didn’t record your name.)
