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 conducting research with data using the Bash Unix shell, version control with Git, and plotting and programming in Python. Learners are expected to attend the full two days.

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. Instructions for accessing course material and installing software will be sent in advance. For questions, contact Data Education Coordinator Nathaniel Porter (ndporter@vt.edu).
