The first training course at Diamond Light Source, UK (2013/10/29-2013/10/31).

Everybody is working very hard to improve their soft skills.

But there was also a chance to put on a labcoat and crack some lipidic cubic phase plates.

It was spooky at the I24 beamline with spiders, evil pumpkins and pictures of falling people.

But our students could not be scared with fake cobwebs and such and took control over the hutch.

Big thanks to Isabel and the Diamond crew for organizing this fantastic training course!
