We are pleased to announce a series of yearly events called ROOT “Train the Trainers”. Such events are aimed at training new ROOT trainers, but not just that: we see it as an opportunity to collect feedback too, both on ROOT itself and on the available training material.
The ROOT team already invests a big effort in teaching ROOT so, in order to reach even more people, it is crucial to get the help of other colleagues. Moreover, we would like these people to cooperatively evolve the training material with us, to join us in making it battle proven.
After completing the training, attendees will be recognized with an “Official ROOT Trainer” certificate and will be encouraged to teach ROOT in the future. The ROOT team will be always there to help them, by providing consulting and material as well as technical assistance.
The first event will have a duration of one day and it will take place on June 14th at the brand new Hewlett Packard building of The Hive campus, which is right next to the CERN Meyrin site:
Prospective attendees should have basic ROOT knowledge and could come, for example, from physics groups, university groups or schools. During the day of the training, they will be cordially invited to a superb treatment with coffee and lunch breaks and gear included. Half of the ROOT team will be present too.
There are limited places and they will be assigned by invitation only. Please feel free to contact us and suggest participants.
Looking forward to seeing you at The Hive!
Enric for the ROOT team
