The workshop will take place on zoom during CEST afternoons, and the meeting should also be partially livestreamed to youtube. For the first two days there will be a sequence of practical short talks and tutorials to demonstrate how to install and use various packages already in the Toolkit. The third day will concentrate on improving the BHPToolkit with a focused 'hack-a-thon' as well as discussion around how to manage and grow the Toolkit. We will provide the detailed schedule of talks a few days before the workshop.
