We are excited to announce our fourth annual workshop for the Materials Project user community.
The main sessions will be held on Thursday, August 1st and Friday, August 2nd, 2019, in the Banatao Auditorium (310 Sutardja Dai Hall) on the University of California Berkeley campus. Optional primer sessions on the Jupyter notebook environment, Python programming, and MongoDB databases will be held the day before, Wednesday, July 31st, in the same location.
This workshop will focus on open-source software tools for data-driven computational materials science developed and maintained by the Materials Project. Industry users, faculty, and students are invited and encouraged to attend. Any revenue from the workshop will be used to fund developments of the Materials Project capabilities.
This is a hands-on workshop. In order to provide individualized support, space is limited to 40 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
Some feedback from last year’s workshop:
- “I learned a lot at the workshop in general. It was a good way to get a grip on how all the parts of the Materials Project interface together!”
- “Advanced case studies, designing materials help you learn how to actually write the code in a better fashion.”
- “I liked the on-the-fly computer coding during the workshop! Fixing problems when you see it not after.”
- “Following along with the online notebooks is a great way to learn interactively!”
- “Great, clear, self-contained, relevant examples.”
