Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time with less frustration by teaching them basic research computing skills.
This hands-on workshop is designed mostly for novice users, and will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation.
Each subsequent session builds on skills gained during the previous.
Here is what the workshop will cover during these two days (September 9-10 from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on each day):
