We will begin with a short demonstration on AiiDAlab, where you will set up a code for Quantum ESPRESSO, install a family of pseudopotentials and calculate the band structure of silicon. Then we will go under the hood and run some Quantum ESPRESSO calculations and workflows via the Python API. The final (optional) section is a step by step tutorial that helps to understand the basic concepts of AiiDA in more detail.
