You do not have to attend each course in the sequence, but you are requested to bring your own laptop for each session as we will be demonstrating the applications in a hands-on fashion, which requires installing the software ahead of time. If you need assistance installing the software, please either come a few minutes early to a session or contact one of the instructors before to get help.

If you wish to attend please register through the calendar of events. Please contact Zac Painter (zpainter@umassd.edu , x8886) with questions.
