Software Carpentry in the Cloud Boot Camp -- UpdatePosted on 4 September 2012
The “Software Carpentry in the Cloud Bootcamp”, hosted by ICHEC in association with Amazon Web Services (AWS), took place over the weekend 1 – 3 September 2012 at the Chartered Accountants house in Dublin 2. We are pleased to announce that the event was hugely successful as staff from both ICHEC and AWS delivered talks and hands-on sessions to a full house of 30 participants.

The 3-day event covered fundamental tools of software carpentry that address the requirements in design, development, execution and testing to meet the demands from today's high-throughput and time-critical industries. Emphasis was placed on deployment in the cloud using AWS to improve software scalability. Over the first 2 days, these issues were addressed through an intensive schedule of lectures and hands-on sessions. On the final day, a “Grand Challenge” was held - in which teams of two devised, developed and deployed their own solution to mine twitter data using AWS technologies that had been collected during the Olympics. Students presented their results using maps, networks, and word clouds. Some sentiment analysis was even carried out by the winning team, Fergal Reid and Anthony Brew. We hope they are enjoying their new Kindle Touches!
