Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. These hands-on workshops 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. Each workshop will be a distinct stand-alone workshop on a different topic. Attend one or all four.

Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (follow this link: below). They are also required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
