Event description

Description

Software Carpentry Logo

April 4th and 8th, 2013

Where: University College London, Christopher Ingold Building, Room G20.

When: April 4th and April 8th, 2013. (Students must attend both days). We will start at 10:00 and end at 17:00 each day.

What: Our goal is to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing, and task automation. In this two-day boot camp, 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 and 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. We strongly recommend cohorts from a research group register together, to achieve best peer-support following the event; if the event is oversubscribed, priority will be given to those who are registering as part of a group.

Requirements: Participants may bring their own laptops to work on, or use one of the computers in the teaching room. We recommend using your own laptop so that you can immediately apply what you learn to your own work. A list of software to install will be sent to participants approximately two weeks before the boot camp, along with a survey (which you must complete) to help us tailor the content of the course.

Content: The syllabus for this boot camp will include:

* using the shell to do more in less time

* using version control to manage and share information

* basic Python programming

* how (and how much) to test programs

* documentation and debugging
