For SOMHO and the rest who might decide to work with us and provide trainees :
Elementary Introduction to Wolfram Language
It is for free and online and we used this for number of years to train US and foreign students. It has worked quite well and students within a year build their own module for quite sophisticated applications.
I do not require any programming experience, but the student needs to be comfortable with regular PCs and their operations.
The training program is 15 months.
First phase is 3 months to screen the candidates. Normally 50% drop out. It requires special attitude and huge patience.
Second Phase is 6 months when the student learns to actually build educational modules, suitable for the kinds of applications and education required for 3D printing in general:
At the beginning there is no need for 3D printers:
Students could preview on their computers.
For educating the trainees in anatomy:
There is a full body 3D modules available, which the students could print part by part and study as well.
After 9 months we review the candidates and make sure they can complete the training.
I like to again emphasize that the training is quite involved and detailed and difficult. It is not for just anyone, these are not Java or PHP little snippets of code, Wolfram programming requires serious commitment.
Our organization specially encourages and promotes female trainees and programmers.
Skype or other online retailed price online conferencing is used for screen-sharing. Currently there are 4 trainers are available.
In the beginning the students are trained on daily basis to up to 3 months for screening. So it is hard work.
