Event description

Description

Wow -- Library Carpentry is popular indeed! This workshop reached capacity in five days, but you can still sign up for the waitlist. We'll let you know if any spaces open up, and when NEASIST hosts another Library Carpentry event -- perhaps during the Mozilla Science Lab's annual Global Sprint in June? -- we'll let you know.

This Library Carpentry, one-day, hands-on workshop will cover jargon busting, data structures, using regular expressions for pattern matching, use of the Bash shell (aka the command line) to speed up and automate tasks, and using OpenRefine for data cleanup.

We welcome groups enrolling as this helps with post-workshop integration of the skills. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own work. You don't need experience to participate -- beginners are welcome.

Instructors

Belinda Weaver

Belinda Weaver organised the 2016 global sprint that took Library Carpentry from a single London workshop to a growing global community. A former librarian and repository manager, she now provides eResearch infrastructure to researchers at Queensland universities. Based in Brisbane, Australia, she is a certified Software Carpentry instructor and instructor trainer and serves on the Software Carpentry Steering Committee. She runs local skills and outreach events such as Research Bazaar and Hacky Hour and tweets as @cloudaus.

Juliane Schneider

Juliane Schneider has had a long, weird library career, with data and discovery as the common thread. She has worked as an insurance librarian, a medical librarian, as a database designer for EBSCO, a research data curator and is now the Lead Data Curator for Harvard Catalyst, and eagle-i.net. In 2016, with fellow UCSD librarian Tim Dennis, she organized and taught the first Library Carpentry workshop in the United States, and is a certified Data Carpentry instructor.
