Welcome to the workshop-2017 wiki!

Tutorial developers: All tutorials will assume participants have an open Jupyter Notebook server. A Jupyterhub will be set up for those who cannot / choose not to set up a personal server on their laptops. Thus, you can assume all users have access to an isolated filesystem with Linux terminal (via the Jupyter interface) and Notebooks using a Python 3 kernel with Python packages (pymatgen, fireworks, etc.) and MongoDB pre-installed. Indicate in your tutorial's wiki page any dependencies so we can ensure our served Docker images have them pre-installed.

Tutorial structure: Each (1hr 15min) tutorial should be made up of "episodes" that are 10-30 minutes long, including 5-10 minutes for one or more exercises.1


† Primary instructor / content developer
‡ Secondary instructor / content developer

The "primary" instructor is responsible for the section, and the "secondary" person is responsible to the primary, i.e. so the primary doesn't feel overwhelmed and can expect to be able to reach out to someone specific for help if desired.
