Following the success of our previous sessions of these training courses we would like to offer them again in February 2015. These courses are open to both facility staff and any interested people from other institutions.
The following courses will be based at ISIS, RAL and are:

An introduction to the Mantid interface, how to graph and visualize your data, manipulate it with the built in algorithms, together with an introduction to curve fitting and live data analysis.
Tuesday 17th February 9-12am: Introduction to Python
This half day course will introduce you to the Python scripting language, no previous experience required, although some understanding of loops and conditional if statements will be expected.
Tuesday 17th February 1-5pm: Python in Mantid
This course concentrates on using Python to build analysis scripts within Mantid as well as controlling the Mantid GUI from python, and accessing the underlying data within Mantid workspaces.
Wednesday 18th February 9-5pm: Extending Mantid using Python
For the more adventurous among you this course will introduce you to the many ways you can use Python to extend the capabilities within Mantid adding Python Algorithms and curve fitting functions, as well as diving deeper into the structure of workspaces.
After the feedback from the previous run this course has been extended to a full day course, together with adding more material.
