Software Carpentry

Software 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.

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, 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: Elbira Zipitria Center, room 0.01, UPV/EHU Ibaeta Campus, San Sebastian - Donostia. Get directions with OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.

When: 28-30 June 2017.

Etherpad: We will use this collaborative document for chatting, taking notes, and sharing URLs and bits of code.

Social Event: We will have a workshop dinner on Friday the 30th. You are encouraged to join in!

Accessibility: We are committed to making this workshop accessible to everybody. The workshop organisers have checked that:

- The room is wheelchair / scooter accessible.
- Accessible restrooms are available.

Materials will be provided in advance of the workshop and large-print handouts are available if needed by notifying the organizers in advance. If we can help making learning easier for you (e.g. sign-language interpreters, lactation facilities) please get in touch and we will attempt to provide them.
