University of Chicago - Software Carpentry
Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 4:30 PM (CST)
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.
