I cannot attend. Would it be possible to access the materials that will be given in the bootcamp?
Slides are at bootcamp-slides-2014-04-03.zip. It is worth noting that we're basing our workshop on the Software Carpentry series of training workshops, and their materials are open source and licensed to the creative commons at http://software-carpentry.org/
Is the required software simply an SSH terminal, or are there specific packages, libraries, distributions, etc that we need to install beforehand?
The minimum requirement is that you can use ssh to log into CLEAR where we'll have relevant software installed.
If you would like to follow along on your laptop, we're doing tutorials on general Linux proficiency, Python, and R. If you have a laptop running Linux (or can install a Linux VM on your laptop), Fedora or CentOS would be the best analog for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution we run on all campus machines.
Virtual Machines and installation of Fedora/CentOS are beyond the scope of our workshop.
