The next Software Carpentry Workshop hosted by the OU Libraries will be held at the start of Spring Break. The attendance last year was good, allowing for learners to come and not miss out on classes or other activities. What is making this workshop different from past workshops is that the programming language being offered is R. Many of the groups around campus are not Python users and so in the interest of broadening the skills of researchers, we will begin to offer workshops both in R and in Python.
The goal of the workshops is to teach basic computing skills and better(best) practices to faculty, staff, and students in order sto get more done with less pain. This is the second workshop of the term. Topics to be included in addition to the R programing language will be the bash command shell and Git/GitHub (version control). The course is primarily focused on beginning programers and skill sets.
