About Software Carpentry
Software Carpentry workshops are hands-on, two-day events that cover the core computational research skills needed to be productive as an individual scientist or in small research teams.
No previous experience is needed and each workshop is taught by experienced researchers who use these tools in their own work. Participants will learn how to automate tasks using the Unix shell, will be introduced to a structured programming language like Python or R, and will gain experience using Git and Github for version control. Workshop content can be used to support a more efficient, rigorous, and reproducible research process.
Four workshops have been scheduled between December 2018 and May 2019. Workshops are held from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. each of the two days. Please register only if you can commit to attending the entirety of the two days; no exceptions. There is no cost to attend.
