Hey there @RossMaltz! We haven’t yet gotten to preparing a detailed schedule for the Maryland workshop, but I suspect it will be pretty similar to the upcoming workshop in Copenhagen.
I would say the primary difference between these two workshops (from my perspective) is 1) duration (2d vs 3d), and 2) scope (the NYC workshop will cover QIIME 2 and Qiita, as I understand it; the Maryland workshop will primarily focus on QIIME 2).
The Maryland workshop is orchestrated through NIH’s FAES program, so they are usually able to offer a very diverse offering of registration options (based on funding, affiliation, etc), so depending on your needs there, that might be something else to consider.
I think either way you can expect the same dedication to excellence and quality that we strive for with all of our QIIME 2 workshops!
Perhaps @antgonza or @yoshiki can “QIIME” in about the NYC workshop (they are the instructors leading that class). Thanks!
