NeSI - Otago Region Workshop

NeSI is pleased to announce its collaboration with the University of Otago and Software Carpentry in offering an Otago Region Workshop designed to support researcher computing capability development.

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

For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".

Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers.

Where: University of Otago.

Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a few specific software packages installed (listed here). They are also required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
