Software Carpentry Workshop

Learn valuable research computing skills

As computing skills are becoming increasingly important and essential for research scientists, the Software and Data Carpentry foundations (now: The Carpentries, have been playing major roles in professional development in practical and technical computing. Since 1998 volunteers have been teaching researchers in science, engineering, medicine, and related disciplines the essential computing skills they need to get more done in less time, and with less pain.

The BIO5 Institute, CyVerse (formerly iPlant Collaborative), and the University Libraries will again present this successful workshop on February 10 and 11, 2018 at the UA.

 The workshop targets graduate students, postdocs, technicians, and faculty; undergraduate students can be admitted if space is available. Learn the foundational skills necessary to be productive in a small research teams, including:

  • Automate repetitive tasks in the Unix shell/command line.
  • Program in Python and Jupyter Notebook to make analyses reproducible and reusable.
  • Collaborate using git/GitHub.

Apply ASAP as our workshops tend to fill fast!
