Software Carpentry teaches fundamental skills that can increase your productivity and improve the quality and reproducibility of your research projects. In this two-day hands-on workshop, you will learn how to automate tasks using the Unix shell, how to track and share your work using version control, and how to write software in R that is readable, reusable, and reliable. This workshop is for you especially if you have no prior experience with these topics.
- The Unix Shell
- Version Control with Git
- Programming with R
More details about the topics covered and a detailed schedule can be found on the workshop's GitHub page.
