Software Carpentry: A Practical Introduction to Good Programming Practices
New

Tue 26 Aug - Wed 27 Aug 2014

Description

This course is organized by the Software Carpentry Project. Python will be used to explore program design, but we aim to cover principles that are applicable to other programming languages, so if you are an R or Matlab user you can also learn something useful. The course will include sessions covering command line UNIX, Version control with Git and programming, testing and debugging in Python.

Applicants for this course are required to complete the survey that can be found here. Applicants will be accepted on condition that their background and motivation fit the course content.
