Agenda

It is assumed that all participants are sufficiently knowledgeable about object oriented programming in C++, Java and/or python. Links to relevant information can be found in the reference documentation (see below). The course is based on previous experiences that have been organized since 2004 and consists of a technical hands-on course using the ALMA Common Software (ACS) framework, alternated with short technical talks and discussions.

The advanced column is intentionally left open to decide items to discuss all together as the workshop evolves.
