The Introduction to Sprinting Workshop (https://github.com/chalmerlowe/intro_to_sprinting) will be held in two parts:
SUNDAY, we will provide ~ two hours of lecture, demo and plenty of hands-on exercises covering installing software (git and conda), creating and using virtual environments, using github, using git, issuing pull requests, etc.
MONDAY, we will work with attendees for ~ 1.5 to 2 hours on a practice project designed specifically to ease attendees into the process of contributing to a community project so they can practice their newly acquired skills in a relaxed environment with plenty of hands-on exercises and patient mentoring and coaching.
For both days, the workshop will take place in room C123+C124 at the Oregon Convention Center.
In addition, we will be staffing a Welcome Table during the first day of sprints to help guide people to the right rooms, answer generic questions and otherwise be a welcoming and encouraging personality.
