This curriculum is intended as an introduction for scientists with engineering background who are considering using the NA-MIC kit as their software platform for research. The NA-MIC kit consists of free open source software without restrictions on use and without a give-back requirement. The NA-MIC kit is suited for academic or commercial activities.
The curriculum provides an overview over the technologies, toolkits and applications which are available in the NA-MIC kit. It is a hands-on curriculum and will require participants to attend with a suitable laptop, preloaded with software and sample data. A working knowledge of C++ is a prerequisite for benefitting from the full curriculum.
