If you are not familiar with Library Carpentry and what the workshop has to offer, here are some interesting facts about the workshop:
Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing tools relevant to aid you in your daily workflow. The workshops and lessons we teach provide a foundational platform for further self-directed learning. Some of the topics and questions we will cover in the workshop will be:
Why you would automate and how, how not repeating yourself is a good thing in computation
Help develop a common vocabulary and set of practices between computing resource specialists and librarians
Working with data in a familiar context
Provide a better understanding of the uses of data/software in modern research, so you will be able to understand what’s happening in highly computationally intensive research.
Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for library professionals to help you:
automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
create, maintain and analyze sustainable and reusable data
work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
better understand the use of software in research
and much more...
