Video walk-through of RSpec
If you already do spectroscopy and want to see how RSpec compares to your current software, watch this fast-paced video: mp4 or Flash. This isn’t a tutorial video, so fasten your seat belt and prepare to be amazed by how easy it is to process your spectra with RSpec.
Tom recently conducted a well-received, hour-long, hands-on workshop to almost 100 attendees at the joint SAS/AAVSO Symposium.
Now you can experience the workshop first hand!
Download the working files from this link. If you don’t already have a copy of the software, install a trial version from this link.
Then follow along in the video below. Let us know your experience. Were you able to follow along? Can you suggest some improvements for our next workshop?
