The course is aimed at UW-Madison graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty who have basic familiarity with programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays and functions), but need help translating this knowledge into practical tools to help them work more productively. At the Software Carpentry workshop at UW-Madison in August, 2014, one of the students suggested that we hand out some cheat sheets on each topic. I’m spending yesterday and today helping out with a two day software carpentry workshop at UW. Software Carpentry helps researchers be more productive by teaching them basic computing skills.
Constantly learning and growing to write great software using the latest best coding practices. Two upcoming Software Carpentry workshops you may be interested in. Next message: Software Carpentry workshops at the UCB, NYU, and UW data science centers on March 17-18, 2014. After a semester of graduate school at UW, I was selected for a 6-month stagiaire in the core design group at AREVA (also in Paris). I have served as an instructor at a number of UW-Madison ACI Software Carpentry bootcamps, teaching both unit testing and version control.
At the University of Washington eScience Institute, our mission is to engage researchers across disciplines in developing and applying advanced computational methods and tools to real world problems in data-intensive discovery. As a Software Carpentry partner, the eScience Institute hosts quarterly workshops in the WRF Data Science Studio and has a seat on the Advisory Board. Tommy is active in the Community Data Science Workshops, and he has developed course material and taught many coding workshops with Software Carpentry. He also enjoys hiking, skiing, cycling, and running in the Pacific Northwest. During my time at the University of Washington, I have been involved in a wide variety of projects, including a large randomized control trial in South Africa, a background paper for the World Bank s World Development Report, and in teaching the first text as data class in the social sciences at the University of Washington. I am also a founding member of POLDEVSVY, a community devoted to sharing knowledge about carrying out surveys in developing countries, an affiliate of Transparify, committed to promoting financial transparency amongst NGOS, and a volunteer with Software Carpentry, committed to teaching computer literacy to scientists.
