Oslo Software Carpentry Boot Camp
Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Thursday, July 4, 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, with a half-day spent on each topic:
- using the shell to do more in less time
- using version control to manage and share information
- basic Python programming
- how (and how much) to test programs
- documentation and debugging
Public transport: take T-bane (subway) lines 3 (towards Storo), 4 (Ringen) or 6 (Sognsvann) from the city central ('Jernbanetorget' close to the central train station), Nationaltheatret or Majorstuen. Exit at Blindern station. It's a 4-5 minute walk from there.
