This Software Carpentry workshop organised by the Software Sustainability Institute will teach writing, managing and automation of code for conducting more robust and reproducible research.

During this workshop, participants will learn the basics of writing code and data management in Python to solve research problems, as well as managing code using version control and working with files and programs from command line shell. The workshop will be delivered online (via Zoom) in an interactive and informal setting, where participants will code-along live with instructors, and will have the opportunity to have many of their questions answered.

Please refer to the workshop website for:

  • detailed schedule and training materials
  • installations instructions and prerequisites for attending the workshop
  • pre-workshop survey that should be completed by participants

Zoom connection settings will be shared with registered participants closer to the workshop.

Please use the code ‘ssi-nbic’ to register via EventBrite and also kindly fill in the pre-workshop survey available from the workshop website.

Please also feel free to register for our NBIC Data Carpentry workshop (R) to gain a variety of computational skills and best practices around creating research software and research data analysis in both R and Python. Both workshops offer basic, entry-level computational skills and attending a Data Carpentry workshop is not a prerequisite for doing Software Carpentry.

Participants are required to install certain software prior to attending workshops – please refer to individual workshop websites for installation instructions, detailed syllabus and agenda.

We will run pre-workshop ‘setup surgeries’ to help participants with any installation issues and to familiarise themselves with the video conferencing tool Zoom to be used for workshop delivery; it is highly recommended that you attend the relevant session(s).

Space is limited, so please register as early as you can. Please contact if you have further questions.
