Description:

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 workshop will cover basic concepts and tools for command-line programming with the the Unix shell. It can be taken alone, but is designed to be taken in combination with the Git (5/17) and either Python (5/18) or R (5/19-20) modules.

The workshop is open to anyone. You do not need any programming experience to participate but you will need access to a Windows, Mac or Linux computer. The workshop will be hosted online using Zoom; instructions for accessing course material and installing software will be sent in advance. For questions, contact Data Education Coordinator Nathaniel Porter (ndporter@vt.edu).
