General event

Software Carpentry Boot Camp

  • Event dates: 4th December 2012 to 5th December 2012
  • Location: University of Edinburgh

Event details

Our goal is to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing, and task automation. In this two-day boot camp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.

This course is aimed at postgraduate students and other scientists who are familiar with basic programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays, and functions) but need help to translate this knowledge into practical tools to help them work more productively.

There will be online follow-up sessions for 6 to 8 weeks, extending the material from the boot camp.

The course is run by EPCC in conjunction with the Software Sustainability Institute.
