Dear all:We are happy to announce a free Software Carpentry workshop to be held on Jan. 18 and 19 2020 at the La Kretz Garden Pavillion! The workshop is aimed at undergraduates, graduate students, and other researchers aiming to strengthen their research computing skills. We will cover several computing tools that are fundamental for scientific research, and we do not require workshop attendees to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop. Specifically, this workshop will explore key aspects of working with the Unix Shell, version control with Git, and essential aspects of R.For a workshop schedule and syllabus please visit our workshop home page: https://ucla-hacky-hours.gitlab.io/2020-01-18-SWC/. Registration is free but space is limited. Please, only sign up if you can attend.

Please feel free to forward this email to others in the community who you think might benefit from this workshop.About Software Carpentry: Software Carpentry is an international organization that aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. Software Carpentry organizes workshops around the world that help scientists learn the basics of program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Check out their website and other lessons at https://software-carpentry.org/workshops/P.S: Software Carpentry instructors at the UCLA Data Science Center and other departments on campus are also running workshops on Thurs/Fri Jan 9-10 (Python workshop, link) and on Jan 16-17 (R workshop, link). If you cannot make it to our EEB departmental workshop, we definitely encourage you to attend one of these other options!
