The Center for Information Technology and Society, with UCSB Library’s Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory, are offering workshops to CITS students and faculty to broaden their technical knowledge.

The library Collaboratory is offering CITS priority reservations at its 2-day Software Carpentry Workshops.

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including command line scripting, version control, data management, and task automation with the Python programming language. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.


*These workshops are targeted at novice users. The only prerequisite is that you can successfully install and configure the software on your own laptop before arriving at the workshop.
