Workshop for Women in Science and Engineering: April 14-15 at LBL

We're very pleased to announce that registration is now open for our second workshop for Women In Science and Engineering, which will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on April 14-15, 2014. We have a stellar roster of instructors and room for over 100 learners, so please sign up early and pass the word on to your friends and colleagues.

This workshop builds on the success of our first WiSE workshop in Boston last June. It will cover topics such as:

  • the Unix shell (and how to automate repetitive tasks);
  • Git and GitHub (and how to use version control to track and share work);
  • Python or R (and how to grow a program in a structured, testable, reusable way); and
  • databases (and the difference between structured and unstructured data).

We are grateful to LBL and to Rackspace, NumFOCUS, and GitHub for their generous support.

We realize this workshop conflicts with the first day of Passover. Unfortunately the availability of the room meant we didn't have much flexibility in terms of scheduling. We apologize, and hope that anyone who can't attend this bootcamp because of the holiday is able to come to another Software Carpentry workshop soon.
