Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on workshop will cover managing the development of code with version control in Git. Participants will be encouraged to help one another.
For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".
Who: The course is aimed at postgraduate students and postdoctoral scientists who are familiar with basic programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays, and functions) and would like to learn best practice techniques and tools to develop their software more effectively and productively.
Before attending the workshop you need to install some useful and free software. For more information, see the software prerequisites.
Please also fill in the Pre-workshop Survey.
Participants are required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
Workshop schedule can be found at the schedule page.
We will attempt to fix any technical issues people encounter during the workshop. If you encounter an issue, please copy the error message you encounter and send it as a direct message to the presenter.
Some problems may be too complicated to solve during the online event. If that's the case, either ourselves or your RAMP RSE will attempt to resolve the issue after the workshop. All training materials will be available online in perpetuity , so if this does occur, after the problem is resolved your RSE will be able to help you through the remainder of the material
