Last week, I was lucky enough to spend an amazing week on work experience with Dave Barney of CMS, doing lots of real work including in the underground caverns of the detector!

The CMS Physics Analysis Toolkit (PAT) tutorial, the fifteenth edition of which ran from 30 June to 5 July, has come a long way. Started January 2009, these tutorials have trained around 500 CMS physicists to use CMSSW, the CMS software framework for physics analyses.
CMS organised a special introductory session for newcomers and young members of our collaboration on 17 and 18 July. Two PhD students, Juska Pekkanen (Helsinki Institute of Physics & University of Helsinki) and Nairit Sur (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai), recount their experience in this guest post.
