Teaching basic lab skills
for research computing

Elsewhere on the Web

Our instructors teach a lot more than just Software Carpentry. For example, Christie Bahlai has started teaching a course on “Open Science and Reproducible Research”. You can follow the course blog or check out the materials in the course repository—contributions from the community are very welcome. The course already includes lots of interesting ideas, and there’s more to come.

Elsewhere, Tiffany Timbers is organizing several half-day workshops at Simon Fraser University as part of Titus Brown’s Data Intensive Biology training program. These workshops will be hands on and supported by several TA’s in addition to the instructor. All are welcome to participate, regardless of discipline or training level—please feel free to distribute these events widely. And if you cannot attend locally because of geography, please note that several of them are being streamed on YouTube:

  1. Regular Expressions and Python taught by Tiffany Timbers on Feb 17, 2016.
  2. Amazon Web Services taught remotely by Titus Brown (UC Davis) on Mar 7, 2016.
  3. R Markdown taught remotely by Marian Schmidt (U. Michigan) on May 11, 2016.
  4. Open Science taught by Bruno Grande (SFU) on June 13, 2016

If you are teaching something out in the open that our audience might be interested in, please send us a link—we’d enjoy hearing more about it, and we’re sure our readers would too.
