1. Python, not so much. I spent nearly the whole day of python completely in the dark. 2. I was happy to be exposed to OAM, ODM, and Rasdaman. However, I will still need to re-do the Rasdaman exercises in addition to learning the basics of bash commands. These are tools I will use in my work. 3. I would have liked to work more directly with the imagery we collected with the drone, and perhaps have a hands-on exercise in programming the camera with CHDK, et cetera. It was helpful to see how the drone was constructed, and I am interested in doing this on my own. 4. I would consider retaking this course once I am a bit more experienced.

first of all, this was a great course! I first expected it to be a bit more focused on drone mapping and ecological applications, but this was also good to have an introduction to the more technical side. Especially, it gave me a lot of confidence to use other programming languages and open source software other than R in the future. Also, it was very interesting to see the different possibilities for dealing with large data now and in the future.

My points of criticism is mainly on the Python and the Rasdaman introductions - I felt that the instructors where not really aware of who the audience is (in fact I asked the Rasdaman guys, and they told me they did not really know) - maybe in the future you can give the instructors more information about the level of the average attendee. There were many basic terms and concepts I think not only I was not familiar with, and I think there would have been enough time to introduce them in the beginning. Especially for Python the exercise part was also kind of unorganized and difficult to follow.

But in general it was a great week and I learned so much! Thanks for organizing this!

Best, Sandra
