Software Carpentry‘s mission is to help researchers get more done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for research 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.
