Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at 1:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

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 introductory 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.

Everyone will attend sessions on 8/5 & 8/10. You will choose whether to learn R (afternoons) or Python (mornings) on 8/6 & 8/9. Please register for only one option.

This event takes place during 4 sessions. You are expected to attend the workshop on all four days. See more workshop details here:
