22/02/2018 - 23/02/2018 All daySoftware 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, 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.
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. A maximum of 30 candidates will be selected based on their need for the course as emerging from the registration form. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop, though we expect you are familiar with the most common Linux commands (e.g., ls, cd, mv, cp, rm, mkdir) and the main concepts/constructs used in programming (in any language) such as "variables", "functions", "loops" and "if conditions".
