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...
