Software Carpentry workshops are hands-on, two-day events that cover the core computational research skills needed to be productive as an individual scientist or in small research teams. This workshop offers graduate students, staff, and faculty short tutorials and practical exercises on basic computational research skills. No previous experience is needed and each workshop is taught by experienced researchers who use these tools in their own work. Participants will learn how to automate tasks using the Unix shell, will be introduced to a structured programming language like Python or R, and will gain experience using Git and Github for version control.
DASH, along with funding from University Libraries, the Graduate School, and the Office of the Vice President for Research, will host four workshops this semester and next. Registration is required and you must be able to attend the full two-day workshop. You can learn more on DASH’s Software Carpentry webpage. *Note:* Open workshops and wait lists are currently full.
