Event Description

Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing."

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop. This workshop will target researchers with an intermediate level of programming experience and possibly with some exposure to version control software or shell scripting. 

Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a few specific software packages installed (listed on the workshop page). They are also required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
