What: Our goal is to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, and task automation. In this two-day workshop, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.


Who: The course is aimed at UCL postgraduate students (who should book via the DocSkills website at: research staff who are familiar with basic programming concepts (like loops, conditionals, arrays, and functions) but need help to translate this knowledge into practical tools to help them work more productively.


Requirements: Participants must bring their own laptops to work on, so that you can immediately apply what you learn to your own work. A list of software to install is available at the workshop website:
