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,
including program design, version control, data management,
and task automation.
Participants will be encouraged to help one another
and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
Together with the advancement of new tools and techniques, and
the availability of large datasets in different research domains,
a solid understanding of common scripting languages and version
control systems is becoming more and more important for many researchers.
Having the knowledge and skills on how to use tools and techniques to
analyze data efficiently, to preserve research output and to collaborate
with peers benefit every research domain. This is a <a href="{{site.swc_site}}">software carpentry</a>
workshop aiming to close the gap between researchers and the know-how for new tools and techniques.
It is an interactive workshop including sessions from concepts to practice on
topics that can be used in many research domain. The sessions are organized
in a friendly environment, where people can learn from each other and share
experience. Participants also get support throughout the whole sessions.
