My advisor-motivator-friend Greg Wilson has recently turned his attention full-time to working on his Software Carpentry course.  He is blogging about his work on the course here and posts updates here.

I am writing in hope that this post will extend to the far corners of my office building in Downsview and reach the dark and dusty cubicles of the scientists at Environment Canada, who are busy coding away in fortran.  This could be the answer to your prayers.

If you want anymore information don’t hesitate to ask me or contact Greg…he’s a pretty pleasant guy to chat with 😉

Take a look at the mission statement for a full description of the course.
