Software Carpentry

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 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.

For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and other researchers. You don`t need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Applicants from the organizing and collaborating entities (CFM and DIPC, and BCBL) will have priority, but the course is open to all scientific community.

There is no cost to attend and coffee breaks are included.

Where: Ignacio M. Barriola Center (room 3.4, 3rd. floor), UPV/EHU Ibaeta Campus, San Sebastian - Donostia. Get directions with OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.
