Hi David,

That's a great resource and already much appreciated as I hadn't realised there were other sources out there.

I found a couple of additional resources that I don't think are on your list:



Best wishes,

Hi all,

I've just spent a little time with Google collecting together tutorials for CCTBX and related open-source projects. I'm sure this is not a complete list, so I thought I'd share in case anyone knows of some other sources to add to it. I'm collecting this because the DIALS project is involved in workshops and teaching. My main interest is in diffraction data processing, but all tutorials that use core modules and types from cctbx are of interest, for potential updating/cannibalisation.
