Data Carpentry Workshop

Digital Agriculture: Data Carpentry Workshop
Sept. 12-13, 2017

Hosted by Iowa State University

Registration: https://register.extension.iastate.edu/datacarpentry

Data 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.

Participants from any discipline are welcome to attend. Participants do not need any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop but will need to pre-load the required software onto their laptop computer prior to the workshop.

We are pleased to have Dr. Mark Laufersweiler, Research Data Specialist – University of Oklahoma Libraries, as the lead instructor for the workshop.

9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Workshop (both days)

Cost: A nominal fee of $25 per participant will be charged for the workshop. The fee will cover the costs of a light breakfast, lunch, and two breaks, which will be provided on both days of the workshop.
