Description

About this workshop

This Software Carpentry with R workshop is a tie-in to the 2017 UQ Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology. Attendees must have attended some of the UQ Winter School.


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 2-day hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. It will also teach R. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.


Who should attend: The course is aimed at graduate students, early career researchers and others who want to develop their skills and knowledge. No prior knowledge of coding is needed.

Course location: The Boardroom, St. Leo's College, College Road, The University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus.

Catering: Morning and afternoon tea (cake, fruit, pastries, tea and coffee) will be provided on both days. Lunch will NOT be provided. You can buy lunch at St Leo's, bring your own lunch, or we will direct you to the many eating places on campus.

Get directions with OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.
