University of Otago and NeSI Data Carpentry Workshop

A Data Carpentry workshop teaches the core skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly.

When working with data, it’s often difficult to figure out what skills to learn or how to get started learning them. In Data Carpentry, we identify the fundamental skills needed in a given domain and develop and teach these skills in hands-on, two-day, interactive workshops. Workshops are currently designed for people with little to no prior computational experience. They follow a narrative structure, working with one dataset through the whole data lifecycle from data and project organization to data analysis and visualization.

Participants need to bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating sytem (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) with a few specific software packages installed. The setup instructions will be provided beforehand. The participants are also required to abide by Data Carpentry's Code of Conduct.
