[On the move] What to teach biologists about computing?

This week, Greg and I are in Annapolis for a workshop convened by Software Carpentry comrade and Michigan State professor Titus Brown on what to teach biologists about computing and data. You can read the full background of the meeting here in the proposal, or a distilled version here. One of the main focuses will be how to extend Software Carpentry, but also looking at assessment, motivation, other comparable projects (and if/how to join forces).

The hashtag for the meeting is #w2tbac, and Greg (@gvwilson) and I (@kaythaney) (and others) will be live tweeting.  We’ll be posting our notes following the meeting. Stay tuned for more. And feel free to add your thoughts here in the post.
