Presentations for alphaMELTS workshop
These are the presentations from the previous series of workshops (2014-2015). They will be replaced with presentations from the December 2018 workshop soon. The files may have been modified slightly since the last workshop, to fix typos or incorporate suggestions. For example the VM alphaMELTS installation has now been incorporated into the "Front-ends to the MELTS family of algorithms..." presentation, and links to cheat-sheets included to help those new to the terminal command line.
If you want to find the exact presentation from a workshop you attended, please visit the alphaMELTS archive page. During a workshop updated presentations will be posted in this workshop working files directory (opens in a new window).
