Pre-release workshop is a hit

by Tom Taylor

Two days before the official launch of the SU2 code, the development team held a workshop to test the release version and start introducing graduate students from the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University to this open-source project.

After a quick introduction, given by team member Tom Economon, the students set about installing and running the code on their own laptops. A lot of feedback, mostly good, but with a few small bugs and requests, was collected and in just a few short hours the user-base of SU2 jumped from the circle of about ten developers to almost 50 in total. In fact, a second round of pizza had to be ordered as the number of attendees turned out much higher than expected.

"The project received a great reception," lead developer Francisco Palacios said. "We are very happy to be able to count on the help of these students ahead of the first release."
