University of Washington - Software Carpentry
Monday, February 25, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 4:30 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.
See the boot camp page for more info.
The boot camps will be at three locations: 204 Russell Hall, Allen 305, and EE 303. See the map.
