Software Carpentry helps 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, as well as a segment on Data Ethics.

Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
