Event description

Description

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic programming concepts at an introductory level in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. The course includes data analysis, data visualisation and basic script design for creating reproducible code. We also provide an introduction to using the Unix-style command-line and managing code versions in Git. Participants are 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 who need to use Python in their research. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of programming or the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Cancellations: We have high demand but limited places so if you wish to cancel your registration, please contact us as soon as possible so we can fill your spot from the waitlist.

Charges: There will be a small charge of $20 payable on the day for food and beverages.

Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should install the required software prior to the lessons. They are also required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
