Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry Workshops

Posted in: Admin Notes

University of Missouri Libraries is hosting a series* of Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry workshops online for Fall 2020. These hands-on workshops will focus on basic concepts and skills to help researchers perform their work in less time and with less pain with code (Python or R), 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. Pre-registration is required.

Specific tools covered (no prior experience necessary) will be:

  • Unix shell
  • Git
  • Python
  • R
  • OpenRefine

*Scheduling note: a full Software Carpentry workshop is usually 2 days face-to-face, covering Shell, Git, and Python or R. We have temporarily moved these workshops online and have separated the lessons into shorter, weekly afternoon sessions. To receive the content equivalent to a full workshop, please register for a session of each lesson (Shell, Git, and Python or R) from the workshop calendar. More detailed scheduling information is available on each workshop registration page.
