On this page are a number of useful resources for learning more about ZTF, the Zwicky Transient Factory. Of particular importance is the Python package Anaconda 2.7, which you should download onto your laptop prior to the Wednesday workshop at Carnegie.  For those of you without laptops, we will will bring a couple extra machines with the package already installed.  This list of resources will be updated as the institute progresses, so please check back here regularly.
