Following the HASTAC 2015 conference, Michigan State University is pleased to announce that we will be hosting two separate workshops on Data Carpentry and on Software Carpentry. These will run 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday May 30 (9am-5pm) and Sunday May 31 (9am-3pm),
Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry’s missions are to teach fundamental computational skills to researchers. Software Carpentry focuses on programming best practices for people with some programming experience. Workshops teach good programming practices in Python, version control with Github and the command line. Data Carpentry teaches basic concepts, skills, and tools for working more effectively with data to those with little to no prior computational experience. Workshops teach best practices for data organization in spreadsheets, text mining and data analysis in R.
These workshops will be focused on data sets applicable to social scientists, humanists, librarians, and archivist relative to the HASTAC 2015 conference theme, the “Art and Science of Digital Humanities.”
For more information, please see http://software-carpentry.org and http://datacarpentry.org. These workshops are open to the public. The registration form is here: https://commerce.cashnet.com/msu_3779 There is a $20 fee to attend either of the workshops.
There is limited space available in each of these workshops. Once registration capacity is reached, there will be a wait list. Email email@example.com to add your name to the wait list.
