NESCent Software Carpentry Boot Camp
Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Friday, May 17, 2013 at 4:30 PM (CEST)
This boot camp is an example-driven two-day workshop on basic computing skills. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring their own laptops to work on.
See http://software-carpentry.org/boot-camps/ for more info.
We will cover the following topics:
- using the shell to do more in less time
- using version control to manage and share information
- basic R programming
- how (and how much) to test programs
- documentation and debugging

UM Postdoc Office/Postdoc Association and Software Carpentry
UM Postdoc Office's mission is to connect you with the abundant resources available within your department, across campus and around town and to advocate for postdocs in University policy discussions. We help each fellow become a successful, independent scientific professional.
UM Postdoctoral Association is a volunteer organization whose main objective is to represent the interests and issues of postdoctoral fellows at the University of Michigan. We are an organization dedicated to bridging the training gap between the laboratory and the changing culture of biomedical science.
Software Carpentry teaches researchers in science, engineering, and medicine the skills and tools they need to use and build software more productively. We have over a hundred volunteer instructors in a dozen countries and all of our lesson materials are freely available under a Creative Commons license.
