Summer with Chameleon Returns - June 11th & 13th (Virtual)

A series of introductory tutorials on Chameleon

Many folks in our community (now over 10,000 strong!) use our testbed for projects with student interns, REU sites, and summer courses. In Summer 2022, we started a series of introductory tutorials to help students quickly learn the ropes and hit the ground running on their summer projects. While Chameleon has extensive documentation, webinars, and blogs demonstrating our features and latest updates, these tutorials add extra structure, interaction, and context for those eager to harness the power of Chameleon.
