Software and Computational Research Skills Training
NBIC is hosting a free Software and Computational Research Skills online training workshop with the Southampton Research Software Group.
The training will take place from 3-12 July and is designed to help researchers gain the skills needed to increase the efficiency and efficacy of their computational skills. In this training, you will gain an introduction in how to use Bash, Git, Python and R.
Automating Tasks with the Unix Shell: Learn the basic concepts of using a text-based interface with a computer. Use the shell to run basic productivity commands and then chain these commands to perform more complicated actions. Use loops to automate time-consuming tasks such as processing or moving large numbers of individual data files. Use the powerful search features to find text in files.
Version Control with Git: Track changes to files made by yourself to be able to more effectively recover from mistakes. Track changes made by a team to be able to work more effectively in collaboration.
Building Programs with Python: Learn the basics of the Python programming language. Learn how to document and add comments to Python code to make it sustainable and user-friendly. Use Python libraries to access the massive amount of tools available from the Python community. Learn the basics of making graphs using MatPlotLib.
Data Analysis and Visualisation in R: Learn the basics of the R programming language. Learn how to document and comment R code to make it sustainable and user-friendly. Use Tidyverse libraries to access the powerful tools available for data manipulation in R. Learn how to create engaging and diverse graphs using ggplot2.
