All information on the school may be found on the main page:
The school is devoted to project development for astrophysics, astroparticle physics & particle physics.
The aim of the school is to provide theoretical and hands-on training on Data Science and Python development (coding environment and good code practices, version control and collaborative development, Python packaging, scientific libraries for data science and analysis and machine learning).
The lectures content may be found here: https://escape2020.github.io/school2021/
Go to anaconda and follow install instructions for your OS.
If you had already installed anaconda in the past, you might want to update it:
conda update -n base --all
In case you don't have Git installed (try to execute
git in your terminal to
check), you should install it first.
Use your distribution's package manager to install the
git package. E.g. on Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install git
Install the XCode Command Line Tools to get git by running this command in a terminal:
$ xcode-select --install
go to git-scm.com, download the windows installer and follow the installation procedure.
Open a terminal and go to your working directory
git clone --recursive https://github.com/escape2020/school2021.git
--recursive is needed because we use submodules for the LaTeX slides and
the web page. You can leave it out in case you don't want to build the slides or web page.
If you cloned without recursive and need the submodules, run
cd school2021 git submodule update --init --recursive
We recommend the use of mamba to solve environment dependencies.
However, you may use only conda (just replace
mamba commands with
cd school2021 conda install mamba -n base -c conda-forge mamba env create -f environment.yml conda activate eschool2021
If you have already created the
eschool2021 env previously, you can update it using:
conda activate eschool2021 mamba env update -f environment.yml
You may run the content of this repository on mybinder service. This should be used rather for test purposes, if you are participating to the school, you should install the virtual environment as explained above and run courses and exercises for yourself.
Some lectures will require the usage of containers to exemplify big data processing and software reproducibility.
Do not worry, like with Git, you will get an introduction and hands-on sessions on containers during the school.
Important For Windows users, it is possible that you will need to enable the virtualization in your machine (it comes disabled by default by some vendors). However, this is highly vendor/hardware-dependent, making it impractical to list a series of instructions.
For that reason, the best option is to Google
enable virtualization in windows X where
X is your Windows OS version. And/or search for
enable virtualization in YZ where
YZ is your machine brand/model.
