(apologies for potential cross-postings) Luis Figueira http://soundsoftware.ac.uk ---------------- *** CALL FOR REGISTRATION *** York Software Bootcamp for Audio and Music Researchers University of York September 13-15, 2012 http://soundsoftware.ac.uk/york2012-bootcamp **** Registration Deadline: 31 July 2012 *** The SoundSoftware and Software Carpentry projects are organising a three-day bootcamp on software development, during the week preceding the DAFx conference. The course is aimed at postgraduate students and other scientists who are familiar with basic programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays, and functions) but need help to translate this knowledge into practical tools to help them work more productively. In this three-day boot camp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. ** Agenda ** The first two days of the boot camp will cover the Software Carpentry syllabus, which will include: * using the shell to do more in less time * using version control to manage and share information * basic Python programming * how (and how much) to test programs * working with relational databases The third day will focus on audio and music research software, with an emphasis on exploring how to apply the skills learned in the first two days. ** Registration ** Registration is free. The registration deadline is the 31st of July, the same as the deadline for DAFx. Registration confirmations will be sent out by the 7th of August. To register, and for further information about the workshop, please visit: http://soundsoftware.ac.uk/york2012-bootcamp NB: This bootcamp will precede the Digital Audio Effects 2012 Workshop (DAFx 2012 - http://dafx12.york.ac.uk/).
