JCU: Intro to Git, Unix and R

7–8 November 2017, Cairns

Digital literacy is critical for generating impactful and reproducible research. The JCU eResearch Centre encourages post-graduate students and researchers to expand their capacity with training like Software Carpentry which aims to help researchers get their work done by teaching them basic research computing skills.

This hands-on two-day workshop will introduce the Unix Shell -- which provides access to powerful tools for data analysis and manipulation. We'll also get a taste for Git -- a tool for managing your data with 'versioning' and increasing your power to collaborate. And last but not least, we'll dip our toes in R -- gaining access to a flexible environment for data manipulation, visualisation and more!

Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
