This program was designed for software developers who want to learn how to begin contributing code to Sahana Eden based solutions that support disaster management, emergency management and other humanitarian organizations. The training program will provide an orientation in the technologies that Sahana Eden uses, describe the architecture of the Sahana Eden codebase; identify the steps to install a Sahana Eden developer’s environment; explain how to share code on Git; provide information on where more information about the code can be found and how to communicate effectively with the Sahana community.
The program is planned for 90 minutes of instruction followed by 30 minutes for questions and answers.
The first of these virtual trainings will be held on Monday, September 30th, at 7:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (23:30 UTC). This training was scheduled to support new volunteers who wish to contribute to the NYC Prepared Project f0r New York’s Long Term Recovery Groups as well as participants in the Grace Hopper Open Source Day. But anyone interested is welcome.

We plan to hold these trainings on a quarterly basis, scheduled to best engage new volunteers in support of planned Sahana project activities and events. Future trainings will be scheduled before the beginning of this year’s Google Code-In (assuming it is being held) in November, before the 2014 Google Summer of Code in March or April, and before the June Sahana Bar Camp in Colombo, Sri Lanka to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Indian Ocean Tsunami.
All sessions will be recorded and training materials will be available on our training page for those unable to attend the live sessions.
