QUT kicks off 2018’s Software Carpentry workshops

QCIF kicked off its Software Carpentry workshops for the year with a Python session at QUT on 20–21 February.

It was a small workshop with Jason D’Netto, QCIF’s QUT-based eResearch Analyst, as the lead instructor.

The workshop was successful with most attendees strongly agreeing with the question “Was the workshop worth your time?”, in the feedback survey.

Due to the strong interest in the workshop and the number waitlisted, Jason plans to run several more Python workshops at QUT this year. To register your interest, please contact Jason: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

QCIF’s eResearch Analysts at other Queensland universities, namely UQ, JCU, Griffith, USQ and CQU, are also planning Software Carpentry workshops this year, in Python, R and high-performance computing. Check the QRIScloud training calendar regularly for newly-announced 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.
