The program is based on a first year IT course developed by James Curran and Tara Murphy at the University of Sydney but with all the activities tailored to astronomers. It includes online learning material, example code, and lecture/tutorial notes.

One critical feature of the program is that all participants install the required software onto their laptops, which they use throughout the summer school. Most sessions are interactive, with the participants following the examples ‘live’. The advantage of this is that at the end of the program they can continue to use all the software (e.g. scripting, databases etc) that they have been working on.
