Meeting on the 13th June

Hi DaSHers,

For our meeting this week the great Ben Galton-Fenzi will be multi-threading the DaSH community.

Ben will lead a discussion on a series of potential future DaSH sessions around computers and science from topics that range from what are computers and how do they work, cloud computing, data access, data formats and high-performance computing (what it is and how can it be used).

The aim of the session will be a brain storming session about what people would like to know more about and to develop a plan for discussing them at future DaSH sessions.

    I think what Anya and Stu said really hit the nail on the head regarding DaSH’s purpose and potential, i.e. that there are probably the three “circles” of problems, tools, and algorithms and that DaSH attendees can potentially learn in some circles and contribute in others.

    Certainly from my point of view as a programmer at IMOS, I can probably contribute/teach in the area of tools (e.g. cloud computing, software design and long term maintenance/avoiding “spaghetti code”), but can learn in the areas of what problems scientists are trying to solve and how to make it easier to access/use IMOS’ data.

    Cheers,
    Jon
