Project Summary:

The main project currently is the Portable Integrated Development Environment (iPoIDE) which was distributed on DVD at JSM and UseR! 2007 and is again under development at James Madison University.

The DVD or USB Drive is a complete software environment built around a core of free software. It does not require re-booting or installation and it runs on all reasonably new computers. It is configured to facilitate best practices through all phases of the work of a statistician in the information age.
