The workshop was an incredible experience. I was able to meet and network with amazingly bright and motivated students, and the intense, fast paced program ensured we all made the most of our time while fostering teamwork. I was exposed to the programming languages used in MatLab, ImageJ, and Python. During a fellowship that same year, I used my newfound skills to write a program and analyze dozens of z-stacks efficiently — allowing my team to draw important conclusions from the work I had been doing.
