University of British Columbia - Software Carpentry (Python)
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PST)
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. Funding support for this event at UBC comes from BRITE (an NSERC-CREATE Training Program in Biodiversity Research).
