"Love Data Week" is February 11-15, 2019

February 1, 2019

The University Library, Research IT and BIDS are collaborating again this year to host Love Data Week, part of a nationwide campaign (February 11-15, 2019) designed to raise awareness about data management, security, sharing, and preservation. Students, researchers, librarians and data specialists are invited to attend these events to gain hands on experience, learn about resources, and engage in discussion around data needs throughout the research process. 

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11
Intro to Savio workshop  
3:30-5:00 pm, Dwinelle 127 (Academic Innovation Studio)
Berkeley Research Computing is offering an introductory training session on using Savio, the campus Linux high-performance computing cluster. We'll give an overview of how the cluster is set up, different ways you can get access to the cluster, logging in, transferring files, accessing software, and submitting and monitoring jobs. New, prospective, and current users are invited. 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12
Code Ocean lunch & learn 
12:00-1:00 pm, Doe Library, Room 190 (BIDS)
Join us for a demonstration and Q&A session on the Code Ocean platform! Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that provides researchers and developers an easy way to share, discover, and run code published in academic journals and conferences. 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12
Preparing your data and code for reproducible publication 
2:00-4:00 pm, Doe Library, Room 190 (BIDS)
This is a step-by-step, practical workshop to prepare your research code and data for computationally reproducible publication. The workshop starts with some brief introductory information about computational reproducibility, but the bulk of the workshop is guided work with code and data. We cover the basic best practices for publishing code and data.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13
Shaping Clouds: Scaling Infrastructure for Research and Instruction at Berkeley
1:00-2:00 pm, Doe Library, Room 190 (BIDS)

There are many great resources for research and instruction across campus, but it can be difficult to determine what is available and where to find it. Join us for a showcase and community discussion about two cutting-edge cloud platforms, Analytic Environments on Demand (AEoD) and JupyterHub, and how best to provide a holistic ecosystem of these and other tools.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14
Data Security: I just called to say I love you 
1:00-2:00 pm, Dwinelle 127 (Academic Innovation Studio)

Learn what love the Information Security & Policy office shows campus and why a day without ISP would break the University's heart. We will also talk about simple ways you can protect your identity and show your data love.
