Getting the data

  • scripts used in the workshop can be downloaded here - if you don't want to use git, you can just click the green Code button, and click Download ZIP

  • data for the 3D segmentation demo can be downloaded

    here from the

    CREMI challenge. The security certificate on

    the CREMI site is currently expired. Here is a temporary link to the

    same file.


  • Please sign up for a Github account if you do not already have one. If you are proficient at git, then this is not necessary

  • To follow along with the developer session, we strongly recommend downloading IntelliJ. It will be difficult to provide support for any other development environment during the tutorial session.
