Software Carpentry workshops in QLD

QCIF is kicking off 2018 with its first Software Carpentry workshop of the year: ‘Introduction to Python’ at Griffith’s Gold Coast campus, 7–9 February.

At the time of writing, there were only a few spots left for the workshop, so register as soon as possible.

Griffith’s Gold Coast campus hosted an Intro to Python workshop last November, which attracted 24 researchers, mostly from Griffith with one from USQ. About a third of the class were engineers, with a fairly even spread of female and male researchers.

QCIF Griffith-based eResearch Analyst Amanda Miotto led the instruction of the November workshop. “This was a really strong class who kept asking questions on things I was about to teach them, which was so good to see,” she said.

QCIF helped more than 250 Queensland researchers with Python, R and high-performance computing in Software Carpentry workshops last year at Griffith, UQ, JCU, QUT and USQ.

QCIF eResearch Analysts are planning more Software Carpentry workshops for 2018. Check the QRIScloud training calendar regularly for upcoming events. 

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills.
