Online Workshops from UC Davis

We have been experimenting with half-day workshops on specialized topics that are broadcast over the web. They have been going very well, so we are planning to do more in the first half of 2016, with about half of them broadcast this way. The tentative schedule is below; all workshops will run 9:15am-12:15pm, Pacific Time. If you would like to present something yourself in one of the open slots, please file an issue or leave a comment on this post — we think this could be a really good way to field-test new material that Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry instructors could use for more advanced audiences.
