Why Bother Teaching Novices?
Application scientists & engineers typically know their applications very well, much better than a collaborating computer scientist would ever be able to.
Because of Linux clusters, CSE is now affordable.
Commercial code development lags far behind the research community.
Many potential CSE users don’t need full time CSE and HPC staff, just some help.
Today’s novices are tomorrow’s top researchers, especially because today’s top researchers will eventually retire.
