NYAS Workshop: Learn Basic Computing Skills to Be More Effective in the Lab

Location

The New York Academy of Sciences

This workshop, facilitated by Software Carpentry, aims to teach scientists and researchers at the graduate level and above in science, engineering, and medicine the basic computing concepts and skills that will let them get more done in less time, and with less effort. Our two-day curriculum shows participants how to automate repetitive tasks with the Unix shell, how to grow a program from a few lines to a few hundred using Python or R, and how to track and share their work using Git. Lessons alternate with hands-on practical sessions, and instructors, who are all working scientists, draw on their own experience to show how these ideas are useful in real-world situations.
