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.

This event takes place in person over four days, from 10am to 3pm each day. You are expected to attend the workshop on all four days. Lunch will be provided. If you can no longer make it to all four days of the workshop, please be sure to cancel your registration since we may have a long waiting list. Thank you!
