The Software Sustainability Institute in collaboration with ARCHER and Women in HPC is organising the first Software Carpentry workshop for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) in the UK. The event will take place at the University of Manchester on 14-15 December 2015.
The course is aimed at female postgraduate students, researchers and engineers 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. Apart from learning a set of useful skills the participants will have a unique opportunity to network and discuss their experiences in working in computational research area. The Software Sustainability Institute, ARCHER, and Women in HPC are planning to run the WiSE events on regular basis at different sites in the UK.
