    I hope I'm at the right location. The old physics lecture room? Advanced Visualization Center?

      Right place, wrong day! I am a giddy goat.

    Will a laptop be necessary for this session?

    May 6, 2014

    • Jeff J.

      No, a laptop is not required. This will be more of a demonstration or lecture than hands-on workshop or hacking session.

      We may do a more hands on follow up session down the road if there is enough interest.
