“Aha” Moments Abound at ESIP’s Custom Bootcamp [now Gateway Focus Week] and Beyond

ESIP's Executive Director participated in Science Gateways Bootcamp in 2017. She found the week-long intensive workshop so valuable that she participated again in 2018 to work on a different ESIP project. Soon after, she proposed the idea of sponsoring a standalone Bootcamp for ESIP projects, which we offered in November 2018. A group of participants from that Bootcamp then presented their resulting "pitch decks" at the ESIP Winter Meeting in January 2019.
