The three of us taught about 30 attendees from various disciplines studying for DPhils (this being Oxford) as well as some Postdocs, giving…

Buried deep within a recent JISC news announcement is a note about a project called Software Hub - a platform for easy access to open source software for education and research. What isn't in that announcement is that this is a project involving the…
