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 Python programming and data analysis using the JupyterLab environment and pandas library.

It can be taken alone, but is designed to be taken in combination with the Unix (5/22) and Git (5/23) modules. We will be using the curriculum at http://swcarpentry.github.io/python-novice-gapminder.

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).
